ON THE PALATE
First impressions are full, affectionate, solid and rounded all at once. Carnal, tactile and in full bloom, the wine’s expression is languorous and holds the note magnificently.
ON THE NOSE
The bouquet is complex and warm, with an exotic combination of papaya, crystallised orange, curry leaves and sweet spices. Rounded off by marine and roasted notes.
ON THE EYES
Copper pink in colour with coral reflections.
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.
