Vintage 1996

Extraordinary grape ripeness & high acidity


This 1996 Vintage Champagne possesses extraordinary ripeness and high acidity. A combination that is rare indeed, it is considered by some to be unmatched since the vintage of 1928. The 1996 vintage harvest took place on the 23rd and 24th of September. The weather was quite variable in Summer time with heat-waves and torrential rains, showing dry and sunny days with exceptionaly fresh nights just before the harvest. As a result of this exceptional year this Champagne is full of contrasts and character, producing an intense and unique taste.
Héloïse Lloris Tête De Cuvée Premier Cru Vintage 1996; a majestic light golden colour with a soft sparkle, very dry, intensely crisp, young and fruity with tones of jasmine, almond syrup, ripe figs, tobacco and cognac. After sometime in the glass, mature toffee tones emerge with a slight haze of medlar. The palate is round and exuberant but at the same time very fresh. Stored correctly this wonderfully poetic Vintage Champagne will continue to improve with age and stand the test of time.
