A real treat to drink this tonight after a lovely boat ride and swim in Muskoka cottage country. It’s mature and delicious. Thank you Steven Campbell for opening this.
Champagne Salon Le Mesnil 1985 France
Golden colour. Lovely aromas of toast, nuts, honey and apples with a faint cheesiness. The palate is intense and concentrated with a lovely crystalline citrus core, which expands into more toast, apple pie and honeycomb notes. This has great intensity and depth, and a lovely acid core. Mature but still very much alive, with gentle fizziness and a vinous character. 96/100
