1982 Salon Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs
750 ML France, Champagne, Le Mesnil Sur Oger, Champagne
Toffee, earth and white chocolate on the nose, plus a strong suggestion of terroir. Concentrated and very rich, with a deep note of beurre blanc and a strong lemony flavor. The acidity carries the flavors through to a long, slightly sweet/sour finish. Like the '83, this wine is impressively endowed but comes across as somewhat disjointed.
