Still has a raspberry and cherry fruit with notes of marzipan hazelnut and bright fresh acidity still quite lively the second bottle has a little bitterness but both are excellent

Wow! Beautifully aged LGD Rose. Still fresh but can taste a little of the nuttiness and toasty notes that the age has produced. What a way to start the night. Happy birthday to me!

Poor storage conditions could have hurt this #champagne a slight effervescence with a dried fruit and and earthy quality did carry some interest. #lagrandedame #1988champagne

Great bottle to share on our wedding anniversary. Mushroom on the nose, apricot on the palate. Lovely.

Very pretty with delicate strawberry, a light nuttiness, yeast underneath and delicate acidity. It’s in lovely shape

Raspberry and pomegranate. The freshness at almost 30 years is amazing. Had with gravlax in beggar’s purses. Great pairing. I am told 88 was the first LGD Rose. I have more.

One of the best 1988s. Not Krug or DR, but stellar. Some oxy, but not off putting. Strong structure and acidity.
