Mesmerigingly beautiful. Has lost some of its youthful austerity, yet remains very fresh and vibrant. A tremendous bottle. Delish.

Much more open than the last bottle we tried, a great champagne more about wine than bubbles, with tremendous length and complexity.

Salon from the highly regarded 1996 vintage. We're drinking this to celebrate my surpassing 10,000 followers on Vivino! And, oh boy, is this a powerhouse! Classic notes of brioche, baked apple, dried honey and smoke. It's the palate of this Champagne that really impresses—massive, expansive and precise. Minerality dominates, arching across the acid spine with thrilling chalkiness salinity and Meyer lemon. The finish is...remarkable.

Just as good as the 1996 Krug from Friday night, just different. So much leaner and focused in style.

v96. A soft spot in my heart always as it was the year I won my champagne award. 96 a great but fruitful vintage, this baby still so young and while showing hazlenut brioche creme brûlée auto lysis development, could have easily been another 5 years. Stunning. Wish I could do it all over again
