SKU #100219 94 points Wine & Spirits

 *no tasting note given*  (12/2000)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Pinot Noir character suffuses this wine, imbuing its aromas with a compelling meaty, leathery, sweaty quality. Full-bodied and earthy, it nevertheless shows great verve and liveliness in its brisk, citrusy finish. This is one Champagne that’s badly in need of age.  (12/2000)

Vinous

 Pale peach skin color. Aromas of ginger apple, caramel, cinnamon and crystallized ginger. Full, round and concentrated; thick and strong in extract. Rather full dosage nicely leavened by firm acidity. Finishes tactile and long, with a note of honeyed apple... (ST)  (11/2000)

Wine Spectator

 Aromatic, with midpalate richness as well as density to the honey and white chocolate flavors. The overall impression is a tightly wound Champagne, with very good concentration and length.  (12/2000)

And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity.
