This excellent vintage created lively and sophisticated wines across the region making this very good value for a vintage Champagne. It has buttered bready notes, a good degree of yeastiness and crunchy tropical fruit flavours followed by a creamy finish.
Fresh, lemony fruit dominates here, with lovely pear and cherry notes joining in. it’s vivid with some toast and nutty savouriness underpinning a lovely direct, pure, fruity core. This is a bright and delicious fizz with real presence.
