Yellow in color with a light golden hue.
On the nose yeast, bread, lemons, earth, minerals, over ripen green apples and light grapefruits. Feels a little oxidized on the nose.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with lemons, over ripen citrus fruits, apples, bread, minerals, spices, herbs and earth.
Nice finish with light almonds.
Although this Champagne was not in its prime condition, it is always nice to drink and experience.
This 17 Year old champagne is a little oxidized for me, but I still enjoyed it. Showing great complexity at this point.
I paired it with a dish of layers of eggplant with ricotta, mozzarella and fresh basil.
12.5% alcohol by volume.
