A word from the cellar manager

Harvest 1996

1996 was a difficult year affected by intense contrasts of temperature. Flowering took place in mid-June under great summery weather, but a cold front stopped it suddenly. As a consequence we observed the millerandage phenomenon, a grape maturation default that affected various berries. In September, a new cold and windy episode slowed the ending of maturation. A positive result of it is sensible in the accentuated freshness of the wines. Harvest started on the 21st of September.

1996 is often qualified as an exceptional but unusual vintage. This is due to the fantastic level of freshness brought by acidity, well balanced with a strong concentration in sugar.

This situations has not yet been experimented again.

Tasting

This Champagne color is a shiny gold with silver reflections. The perlage is very fine and elegant. Aromatic notes are complex: toasted nut, toasted brioche, chocolate powder and warm almond. Some flower hints are still perceptible after all this ageing time. In the mouth, texture shows finesse and delicacy. The freshness is long and perfectly integrated into the smoothness of the wine.

Et si la Maison de Champagne duvalleroy tenait le projet Champagne le plus excitant de cette fin d'année avec son programme Dégustation Secrète ?
Pour célébrer les 30 ans de carolduvalleroy à la tête de l'une des dernières maisons indépendantes et familiales, Duval-Leroy lance une caisse d'anthologie : 6 cuvées retraçant les millésimes les plus marquants de la carrière de sa présidente dont un Blanc de Blancs 1996, un Brut Nature 2002 et d'autres parcellaires hypnotisants.
Tous dégorgés en 2021, chaque goutte est un délice.
Le tout dans un habillage secret et conservant le suspense jusqu'à l'ouverture de la coiffe.

Näst sist av de sex i degustation secrete ikväll.

Rostat bröd, saftiga gröna och röda äpplen där den syrliga äppelsaften smeker gommen länge. Försiktigt begynnande mognadstoner ...vilket är helt vansinnigt då jag traditionsenligt gissar fel på 2008 då istället visar sig vara 1996! En blanc de blancs från från fem grand cru-byar i Côte des Blancs.

Har ett långt liv framför sig. Med luft kommer alltmer mer komplexitet fram med träolja, lakrits, karamell, tobak och nötter. Sannolikt minst 5 år innan den når sin peak vilket den säkert kommer hålla i många år.

92+/100.

デュヴァルルロワのデギュスタシオン・スクレット。キャップフォイルをめくるまでは6種類あるうちのどのヴィンテージかわからないというもので、2本買ったうちの2本目は1996年。これは当たりだったかも。
