Taittinger Artist 1985 #4

60% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims; 40% Chardonnay from the Côte de Blancs. Minimum five+ years on the lees.

Antique bronze patina.  Fully mature yet still clearly rendered, this is flavorsome and spiced, a fondue of wet timothy hay, clover honey, hazelnut, pomelo blossom, poached pear, apple tarte tartin and malted grain.  Underneath, not a hair out of place, poised, punctilious and classy.  Elegant, satisfying finish.  A fine wine with true generosity and character.  For drinking soon.
