Tasting notes

Femme de Champagne 1996 is really quite pretty in the way it balances some of the more mature notes from extended lees aging with the freshness of the vintage. It displays rich flavors of baked apple and plum fruit, almond financier, crème de cassis, honey and toasted coconut. To be sure, this isn’t a blockbuster 1996, but it offers plenty of class and elegance in an approachable, delicate style for the vintage. The rich, radiant fruit flows effortlessly through to the long, satisfying finish.
