Definitely showing its age, great amount of bubbles still.

1985. The champagne that started it all for me many years ago. Still as seductive.

DOA - sherry, apple cider vinegar. Boooo! WTF? I don't know that I've ever had a good bottle of the '85.

What a treat! A Salon vertical from vintages 10yrs apart. The release of only 30vintages over the past 100yrs is a testament to the pursuit of quality. This 1985 was very much alive and kicking. Tons of layers of white fruit toasted honey covered nuts.#primetimewinetime #右上の会
