A re-release from the 1995 vintage, this is a wine that shows exceptional richness. It also shows maturity and toastiness, a style that historically has appealed to American and British Champagne collectors. But it is not just for collecting, because this wine is delicious, its secondary flavors of hazelnuts, toast and acidity making it an excellent food wine.
