As long as cellaring has been present then a quite unexpected drinking adventure can be found... As a note of caution however - of all the types of old wines available this one has the most difference between expectation and result - not all old bottles will even still have bubbles! Read on... The Allure of Aged Champagne By Lyn Farmer Of all the great wines, Champagne may be the one most prized for its freshness, youth and vitality, yet it also can be a wine of great complexity that develops nuance and character over time. This wine of kings comes in many flavors and guises. There are the light and frothy quaffs, and rich and weighty renderings. There are flavors of citrus, apples and minerals, and flavors of yeast, malt and toast. Some are mindful of freshly baked bread and others of roasted nuts. All of these seductive qualities are products of both nature and the winemaker's art, linked by technique and by age. Of all the aspects of wine drinking, none is more confusing for novices and long-time drinkers alike than the question of age. Myths abound: All reds need time to mature, all whites should be drunk young and all Champagnes should be immediately consumed to appreciate their freshness. Industry statistics clearly show that nearly 98 percent of wine sold in the United States is consumed within a day or two of purchase. Even makers of the most age-worthy reds happily sell their wine to restaurants where they know it will be dispensed and consumed before the ink is dry on the bill of sale. Given Champagne's strong identification as a special occasion, celebratory beverage, its makers have had their hands full just getting the general public to accept it as an everyday, fine wine, and an exceptionally food-friendly wine at that. The next step, perhaps even more challenging, is to understand Champagne as a wine that can improve with age. Some Champenois are concerned that consumers won over by Champagne's freshness and nuance may be unprepared for the difference in flavor of aged Champagne. Louis Roederer Winemaker Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon says "some of these flavors are so particular, people are surprised by the character of old Champagne." He believes that 95 percent of their customers would have trouble understanding some of these flavor facets and aging anomalies. Even the devotees who make up the 5 percent that Lecaillon would call savvy may be hard-pressed to explain the intricacies of aging or debate the merits of the complete Champagne-aging process, which can be divided into two separate - and very different - methods. The essential second fermentation that takes place in the bottle and creates Champagne's distinctive bubbles leads directly to the first method of maturation, which occurs before disgorging and is known as aging on the lees (the heavy, yeasty sediment created during the secondary fermentation and eventually expelled). Aging the finished wine on the cork after disgorgement represents the second method - a process that is essentially optional and even controversial. Few would dispute the value of extensive aging on the lees, which generally imparts toasty, doughy flavors and complexity, but there is an ongoing debate about whether aging on the cork improves a Champagne or deadens it. "When aged on the lees, preserved from oxidation, a Champagne will keep more freshness and will taste crisper," due to the wine's natural acidity, says Fabrice Rosset, president of Champagne Deutz. "Wine aged on the cork has received plenty of oxygen in the disgorging process, so we move from the reductive process of lees-aging to the oxidative process of aging on a cork." Cork-aging is an issue, a loss of control, if you will, for every winery. According to Dacotah Sutor, a U.S. spokesperson for Charles Heidsieck Champagne, cork-aging yields a wine that "will slowly deepen in color, lose some of its bubble and take on the caramel and burnt flavors that are the classic characteristics of maderization." Palates are divided on the benefits of cork-aging. Over the years (and particularly in researching this article), I have tasted many Champagnes aged on the cork well beyond their release date and continue to marvel at the irony of a white wine that is capable of aging longer than most reds. The resulting qualities that develop are almost never explored by consumers and seldom discussed by the Champagne makers themselves. "True, we don't talk much about it," says Christian Pol-Roger, general manager of the grande marque that bears his family's name. "The fact is, some Champagnes age well [on the cork] and others do not, but beyond that, it is really just a question of taste." The "taste" he refers to is sometimes called got Anglais (the British propensity for very old, even oxidized, wine) by the French. Those who possess an English palate generally revel in the slightly maderized qualities imparted by cork aging. 28583 isleofwine TOP 6 FAQs: Q. How much is shipping?
