❤️🍾Cheers to the Delectable Community🥂❤️

There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
(Nelson Mandela)

Amount disgorged: 16,388 bottles in October 2008 - Dosage: 4g/l (No Reserve Wine)

Winery Notes:
"The 1990 Vintage is a blend of 17 different Crus, all classified as Grands and Premiers Crus.
Black grapes make up two thirds of the blend: 56% Pinot Noir, from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne, and 11% Meunier, from the Premiers Crus in the west of the Montagne de Reims.
The blend is completed with 33% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and, to a lesser extent, from the Montagne de Reims."

1982 vintage. In magnum. Medium lemon hue with delicate bubbles. Roasted aromas, ripe citrus fruits, almond, smoke. Hints of roasted coffee beans Complex. On the palate, high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol and medium plus concentration. Very long and elegant whilst being surprisingly fresh and moreish. Hard to fault. Drink now until 2026+.
