1977 Moet Chandon, Silver Jubilee, Champagne, France

WOW! I was so afraid that this baby was dead as I was about to dig in to my first real old champagne experience. It had a beautiful golden dark yellow colour. The nose offering huge complexity with notes of: subtle dark bread, anise, prunes raisins, peach and mango. Also sherry tones, and so delicate with the mouse extremely fine and subtle. The taste is oily in the mouth and the mousse is perfectly intact and during the one hour the bottle was open it was fresh all the time. The finish is very long - simply great stuff. (95)

(Tasted 11 of March 2005. Glass Juhlin)
