bollinger, rd 1995
A dry, oxidative style, with whole-grain bread, ginger, roasted hazelnut and yeast notes lending complexity. Its structure comes into relief due to the dryness, but overall this is balanced and well-integrated, with a very long finish and an expansive aftertaste. Ideal with seafood and rich sauces or game birds. Drink now through 2020.
Very clean, young and fresh, with tremendous aging potential. Pineapple and Golden Delicious give it primary, young-fruit flavors that need years to develop. This rating may look stingy in time.
