1976 Dieblot-Vallois, Champagne, France

Despite its age this baby was singing from the first date. Crystal clear in the glass and the nose followed with a great purity. No doubt that there is some age involved with plenty of dark bread and evolving more sherry tones as time passed in the glass. Otherwise the primary note was fresh baked croissants. The taste is long with plenty of vibration and seductive mousse tickle. (94)

Tasted July-2005
