R. Renaudin 1996 Magnum Brut Champagne

1.5 Liters.  “Espiègle” Brut Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru Grower Champagne We had a celebratory glass of the 1996 after we closed the doors on Christmas Eve, in a socially distanced way, of course. This was deep into the nutty tone of aged Champagne with nuts joined with waxy apple and pear with a triscuit and pineapple fruit emerging with air. The palate shows the zippy acid of the 1996 vintage with ample nuts, apples, pear, and crackers with a dried pineapple character to finish. This is for those lovers of where Champagne goes with time in cellar-- deep into a sparkling sherryesque quality. As we went our separate ways on Christmas eve- it was with visions of well aged Champagne dancing in our heads! D&M Tasting Notes

The holdings are all in the villages of Moussy and Pierry, just south of Epernay and just above the start of the Cote des Blancs. Their spacious buildings are testimony to the scale of their former operations. Now they are content to sell off the majority of their grapes to other houses while retaining the best for themselves, all of which are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Production is now down to a scant 50,000 bottles a year, and they show no hurry to sell anything! One of the attractions is their considerable library of old vintages for sale — including a significant quantity of 1990 in Methusalem! (Moussy) Hiram Simon, Importer
