(Tasted blind) A terrific wine and by far the best Champagne I have tasted from vintage 1995. The wine is surprisingly open and my guess is that it will soon close down. The nose has Jerusalem artichoke, almonds, dark bread, brown apples and corn. The nose is deep, with many zones for the fruit to feed on. The taste is very concentrated and focussed. I rested a tiny bit in the bottle, which I drank three hours later – still great and the fruit even deeper – very nice.
