bollinger, vieilles vignes francaises 2007
Burnished and open-knit, the 2007 Vieilles Vignes Françaises gives the impression it will mature at a faster pace than is the norm here. Orange confit, mint, apricot jam, hazelnut and coffee are all finely-knit in the glass. I would prefer to drink it over the next decade, although it will almost certainly hang on for longer than that. Quite simply, the 2007 Vieilles Vignes Françaises is endowed with extraordinary precision and class, especially within the context of the year. Drink through 2029.
