($64) Very ripe, rich aromas of tangerine, smoke and sweet butter. Big, frothy and full, with slightly exotic, creamy flavors of soft citrus fruits and nutmeg framed and lifted by strong minerally acidity. Very dry, firm and long on the finish, hinting at more flavor complexity to come with further time in bottle.

Tight and neat. Much more fruit than the 1998. Dense and very, very solid.  Masses of acidity. Quite long and with great length.

An almost overripe nose with oxide notes and tons of bread, licorice, and chocolate—all appearing right from the start. Big and mellow like the '90, but not as classic as the '95, '85, and '88. We'll see where it goes. Maybe it will dry up and stop in its premature growth curve. The first time I was disappointed, but the next time I was impressed by the power and the dark, fine red-wine-like structure.

Consistent notes. Excellent Champagne; has developed nicely in bottle and now fully mature with a deeper gold color and mellow fruit. Plenty of fine bubbles; complex, yeasty/creamy yet w/plenty of high notes; complex; long. Drink soon.
