Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 97

Disgorged 20 years ago, the golden colored 1985 Blanc des Millenaires – comprised of 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir – displays a deep and beautifully matured nose with wax, honey, caramel and butterscotch aromas. Full-flavored, rich and highly elegant in the mouth, with great intensity, structure and complexity in the aromas, this 31-year-old prestige cuvee is fascinatingly vital – although there are almost no bubbles visible. There are dried stone fruit flavors in the finish. A great drinking experience. [Stephan Reinhardt, 28/09/2017]

JancisRobinson.com – 18.5

Disgorged 1994. Winter frost killed some vines and then a heatwave in summer caused double concentration, including that of acidity. Orangey gold. Lively and powerful nose that reminds me of early Australian Chardonnay! (Or perhaps the yeast that was used for them.) Plus earthy, undergrowth flavours. This vintage is much fresher than the 1990. Very lively and racy for its age. Long and just starting to dry out but very good. Has lasted well and taken on many layers. Some richness at first but very clean, crisp and fresh on the finish. Long. Dried citrus peel. Super-clean. Dramatic wine compared with the complete classiness of the 1983. [28/08/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 1995-2022
