...we were somewhere around Bouzey, when the Champagne began to take hold...this is a mind bender of a Champagne, Leopard Vintage refers to the slender bottle neck (same as Krug I think) which is dressed in leopard print, it may look...gamey but it is sleek and sophisticated, detailed on the palate due to it's ageing in Sauternes barrels - an aristocratic Champagne...STSwine
Powerful, direct and intense. Terrific fabric like the 2012 one, but just as durable. Vital acidity and high concentration from low yields, with fine tannins in the intensive, long finish, which shows a lot of pressure and arrives youthfully agile, of exceptional class. Possesses an explosive potential with a creamy intense body. The small amount of Chardonnay also gives it some delicacy. He can certainly remain at the extremely high level for over 20 years of permanent change towards maturity. 94 POINTS, LOBENBERG
