TASTING NOTES

A delightful, crisp nose of brioche, apple-blossom, a hint of nougat, praline and cashew nuts all with wonderful definition and vibrancy. The palate is showing very good fruit concentration, very smooth and slightly honeyed in texture. Great mineralite towards the finish, elegant and beautifully poised with that praline notes coming back on the aftertaste. All you could wish for in a ’90 champagne. 

Neal Martin, Vinous.

Drinking superbly, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of dried orange, pear, praline, honeyed toast and subtle hints of mocha. Full-bodied, textural and vinous, with superb depth at the core, bright girdling acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse, it's seamless and complete.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

A sense of opulence marks this highly concentrated, creamy-textured 1990 Champagne, with its ripe, generous fruit flavors complementing the toasty, honeyed nuances acquired from aging on the lees. Lingering finish. #11 Top 100 Wines 1999, Highly Recommended.

Wine Spectator.

Magnum and still magnificently fresh despite its rich, bready weight and complexity. No hurry to drink this - from magnum anyway.
