Alfred Gratien Brut Millesime Champagne 1997
Overall impression: A perfect balance of alcohol, sweetness and acid. Bouquet and palate are in perfect harmony. An excellent vintage that will take its place in the history of the centuries.
Color: Transparent, brilliant, with sparkling golden highlights. Sparkle: Fine, long-lasting mousse with a creamy finish. Bouquet: An initial burst of fruity, biscuity flavors with notes of almond and nuts, followed by a second nose of red plums and mirabelles. Palate: A delightfully fresh initial impression, pure notes of autumn fruits with a hint of mirabelles.
