Feeling nicely oxidative at this age / dried apricot rolled in brioche / still some tartness

This was Michel Drappier's first vintage, and I was lucky enough to drink it with him, his father and his son- Three generations of Drappier's! Truffles, forest floor and deep golden toast balanced by enough clean acid to go another generation!

Anniversary wine! And my birth year too. Still quite fresh - needed to open up. Super caramel apple initially but biscotti and lemon zest with anise to finish up. 79 vintage opened summer 15 G

Very good mature Champagne! Complex and great tension. Acidity was still kicking live and well, with dried fruits and dried flowers. A great wine to enjoy now.
