Whereas this was a real pleasure and a great example of a ‘96! A second entry for Moutardier’s vintage, and the middle of a very nice trio of Champagne days: 23rd Taittinger, 24th this and 25th Bollinger (and Möet rosé). All my favourites. Pale yellow-green with a fine, persistent bead. Creamy nose, opening into almond and some biscuit. Fresh clean palate of lemon-lime and white flowers. Good length. And €10. Very good value indeed.
