The 1988 Collection offers stunning interplay of vintage 1988 vibrancy with the complexity that has developed in bottle. Apricot, pastry, brioche, dried flowers, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes all infuse the 1988 with notable complexity and nuance. At 31 years of age, the 1988 Collection remains taut, classically austere and full of energy. It will drink well for another 20 years or more. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, December 2019)

Light gold. Nutty and bready with a bold and tangy acidity. Long and complex.

Just a few bottles from an awesome Open That Bottle Night celebration this past weekend.

Stunner. I enjoy the more oxidative style champagnes and this is fully in that realm. A streak of sherry notes line the middle, surrounded by poached pear, toffee, espresso and baked brioche.

Gorgeous stuff. Tawny golden color. Good secondary characteristics with a hint of marmalade, peaches. Good fizz and lovely mineralogy and length.

A honeyed nose and color with fresh layers of steel and limestone. On the palate vivid and beautifully complete. Really complex with apricots, hazelnut, spice and really long with dazzling acidity. The freshness is a real testament to late disgorgement.

1985 vintage. Medium golden hue. On the nose, some spicy notes and stewed fruits. Deep concentration of aromas workout any obvious oxidation. On the palate, balanced but slightly tired as the stewed dried fruit note comes to the fore. The finish is long but lacks the depth and kick of the 1979. In esteemed company this slightly falls short. On its own it’s a wizz.
