Unfortunately, the champagne had already peaked. The wine had changed color to a yellow...and he taste had flavors of wood and smelled toasty. I don't think vintage champagne can be aged this long ( 17 years).
Slight amber and gold color with aromas of nuts, flowers - honeysuckle - with similar tastes. Graceful and elegant wine. (I'm still not sold on the high end champagnes, especially when the NV PJ is so good...). I believe this wine will keep for another 5-10 years but is enjoyable now.

Very well balanced with a nice long lively finish. Pale gold color. Incredible buttered toast and honey nose with some nice citrus to round it out. Very supple and well rounded wine. An outstanding champagne that I enjoyed very much!
