Tasting Notes

The 1982 Brut Collection is breathtakingly beautiful. Smoke, pastry and caramel are some of the nuances that emerge from a sublime Champagne that recalls a fine, aged grand cru Burgundy in its complexity and level of depth. Very vinous, with a delicate, almost imperceptible mousse, the 1982 Collection is a graceful, layered wine of the highest level. This is pure magic in a glass. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.

Score: 96Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate (186), December 2009

Rich and ample in volume, with mature flavors of dried citrus, truffle, leather and spice, all backed by a firm structure. Turns leaner and sleek on the finish, with a lovely smoke and spice aftertaste. Drink now through 2015.
