A 40 year old RD Champagne is not something you taste every day, especially out of Magnum! No loss of CO2 and a lovely rich prune nose with enticing fresh acidity and lots of depth. Amazing

Amber colored with hints of marmalade, hazelnut, dry wood. Very poised and lucid with good acidity. Recently disgorged so fresh but a great, oxidized mature champ. Very good
