The 1995 Harvest, The year was notable for its exceptional summer: a fairly overcast spring meant that the vines flowered late but quickly. The summer compensated for the spring, with a heat wave arriving at the end of June. For two months, there was hardly any rain, just a few isolated clouds and above-normal temperatures that seat a 30 year record. The harvest began on September 18 for the Chardonnay and on September 25 for the Pinot noir grapes.
ON THE PALATE, After the upfront intensity and roundness, there is a gradual tension which becomes persistent, vibrant, pure, mineral and fruity.
Dosage: 5 g/l
Screaming out of the class with perfectly balanced freshness, smoothness, salinity, citrus, lemon, with tones of honey and fresh plumb evolve as we enjoy this trully magnificent Champagne.
There is absolutely no doubt that we will be able to enjoy this beautiful Vintage over the next few decades. My suggestion is to drink up and enjoy!
