"This superb 1985 is a blend of 90% meunier and 10% chardonnay all from Monsieur Rene Collard's vineyards in the valley of the Marne. White truffles, brioche and pine-nuts! This is such a complex, elegant and completely fresh wine that it is hard to believe it is so young, and hard to believe it is so old! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne and Sherry Buyer) "

5 stars "Amazing! Deep golden color, smoky nose with notes of red berries. On the palate, surprisingly tasting like a sherry! A perfect match for foie gras toasts."
