ON THE PALATE
The wine is full and round without being opulent and expresses great harmony. The attack is definite and intense leading to a silky finish reminiscent of preserved citrus fruits.
ON THE NOSE
Initial floral nose gives way to notes of fresh almonds, dried apricots and toasted brioche.
THE 1990 HARVEST
After a particularly rapid spurt in vegetation growth, the Champagne region is hit hard by spring frosts in April. Blossoming is therefore difficult in the cold and rainy conditions. Blossom drop and uneven grape development are only compensated by the large number of bunches and the wide branches. A heat wave summer then sets in and remains until the generous downpours in the days leading up to the harvest, (on September 11). The musts boast an exceptional composition and homogenous quality; throughout the Champagne region.
