Oenothèque

1959

ON THE PALATE

The ripeness of the grapes radiates in an opulence that is full, yet never heavy. The warm, ample, fairly sweet attack proclaims extreme body. Well-rounded and exceptionally long, fat and fruit in the mouth. An amazingly fresh finish for the vintage.

ON THE NOSE

Exceptionally complex, revealing aromas of oriental tobacco, honey, liquorice, figs and a blend of coffee and chocolate.

The 1959 Harvest

The harvest began on September 10th under conditions rarely enjoyed in the Champagne region. Everything combined to make the year a quintessential vintage.
