Majestic- one of the best '76 vintage champagnes I have had. Smokey, nutty but also so focused thanks to the no-malo style!

Tasty but over the hill, showing bruised apple and overripe pear. Fun though.

Mineral, lemon cream, smoke, hay, toasted nuts. The palate is almost chalky to the extreme. A lot of grip. But shockingly low in acid.

Beautiful aged notes. Still fresh and bright. Rich and seductive.
