Salmon rose colored. Starts with a rough and yeasty nose. Lower acidity than the 1998, and with a harder edge. Less floral, lots of acidity on the finish, however. Cherry finish, with more subtlety than the rest of the wines showed - excellent.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Rich and creamy, this is aging gracefully. The finely tuned acidity and lightly beaded texture provide an elegant frame for the layers of coffee liqueur, toasted almond, cherry bon bon, iodine and orange peel flavors. The long finish is tinged subtly with smoky mineral. Disgorged October 2008....95" WS 11/12

Tasting Notes:

The initial nose is enchanting, calling up notes of roast coffee, mocha and cocoa that give way to more complex aromas with a mineral background typical of the red wines from Champagne.
