R. Renaudin L’Espiègle Champagne 1er Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs 1996

Another miracle of suspended animation, this was Renaudin’s chosen Millennium wine. Ignore, if you will, the questionable bottle and concentrate instead on the preternatural verve and brightness of the flavors.

1996 is a controversial vintage, but this is one of those examples that bolsters its claim to being among the handful of great post-war years. That such a wine has remained undisgorged at the property until 2019 is baffling, but we are not looking a gift horse in the mouth. Being in MAGNUMS has only accentuated the wine’s slow evolution. It has decades of life ahead of it.
