1990 Alfred Gratien Brut Champagne 750ml

An bouquet initial burst of fruity, biscuity flavors with notes of almond and nuts, followed by a second nose of red plums and mirabelles. On the palate a delightfully fresh initial impression, pure notes of autumn fruits with a hint of mirabelles. Overall a perfect balance of alcohol, sweetness and acid. The bouquet and palate are in perfect harmony. An excellent vintage that will take its place in the history of the centuries.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 93

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Gratien's 1990 (65% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier) has white fruit and toast aromas. It is exquisitely balanced, elegant, with loads of underlying pears, apples, yeast, and cream flavors. This classic, age-worthy (I've tasted Gratiens back to the Sixties, and they can evolve magnificently) wine can be drunk now or held in a proper cellar for 15+ years.

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 90

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Incredibly fresh and youthful, this 1990 seemingly hasn't budged, its mélange of dough, apple, fig and citrus suspended in the elegant structure. Very firm and minerally, with a subtle finish, it's tight and lean overall.
