I absolutely loved it - not a krug or Cristal but it you like finesse and elegance and structure versus over the top powerful champagne like I do then this will speak to you - some sweetness but really not made that way - big smile - I think it is it’s prime drinking window

Looking a little more developed than the last time I opened this one, doesn't have the acidic backbone to really stand the test of time. But still quite solid, the best I've had of this has been the '96.

like it more than before but remaining with prior thoughts of elegance n grace, but adding depth, complexity and a sexy dose of provocativeness

Duval Leroy tasting... 2000 showing beautifully, with at least another 15 years left in it.
