This fine champagne has a maturation of at least 8 years. Actually, this is still a very good quality brand. The differences with now are not that big, only the old blend is just a bit more characteristic. It has a nice light orange golden glow. Remarkably soft and spicy with hints of vanilla and floral tones. The palate is even more vanilla with wood, although all super soft. The finish is long, but a little complex.
