Oenothèque 1990

Oenothèque

1990

ON THE PALATE

A penetrating, harmonious, precise richness without opulence. Persistent notes of candied citrus peels affirm themselves, becoming a vigorous and silky blend.

ON THE NOSE

Complex aromas of roasted coffee and woody spice quickly merge with notes of barley sugar and dried citrus peel.

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.
