Drink Dates 2010-2020

One of the more complex and deep champagne noses I've had. Very close to the complete champagne smell. Sweet bakery, exotic fruits, ripe citrus, roasted coffee and nuts. In a stage where both mature notes and young fruits are represented. Just goes on. Big, almost enormous palate attack with explosive mousse but still very creamy mouthfeel. Good length. Only one small personal problem with this, it's on the sweeter side of the dosage-scale, which for me is clearly noticed when warmed or after more than one glass. Very flattering. I think this is in a very nice spot for drinking right now. However if you like really mature style, you can wait five more years.
