International Wine Cellar
($93; disgorged July, 2010) Bright gold. Complex, expressive aromas of pear, honey, chamomile, jasmine, marzipan and smoky minerals. Smooth and supple in the mouth, with a fat impression to its orchard and pit fruit flavors. This fleshy, silky Champagne reportedly comes from vines that are between 49 and 99 years old. Fine-grained and intriguing wine, with very good volume and finishing cling.
