1996 Egly-Ouriet, Vintage, Champagne, France

After having tasted a wide range of the wines from Egly-ouriet – this is the most impressive. Bold and intense fruit core. Layers of bitter chocolate, anise, pepper mint, citrus and lollypop. The taste is impressive and lush, but a citrus drop on the back palate gives a fresh attack. Still I must admit that my love affair is with the champagnes that offer more crushed stones and minerals. However – I liked it very much and it will cellar well. (93+)

Tasted 5th of August 2005. Glass: Juhlin
