1996 Diebolt-Vallois Fleur de Passion Blanc de Blancs
The FdP 1996 pours beautifully in the glass, viscid deep vintage gold with green reflexes. It carries the archetype nuances of a matured Blanc de Blancs. Very welcoming and promising!
The scent is so astonishingly thick and intricate, that a saturated luxury pastry served in the most opulent and glittering Salon at Versailles, comes to mind. Then initiates with fresh liquid honey in full cream milk, fleshy fat tropical fruit, crab, fois gras, wild mushrooms, walnut shells, chocolate, macadamia fudge, a luscious scent of hyacinth, super concentrated raspberry marmalade, short crust pastry shells, sticky black liquorice, mouthwatering ripe sweet citrus, all sorts of ripe red berries, old leather bound books, dried black tea leaves and cognac oak aged virgin Rum. Well, what is there for us to say? It´s kind of ridiculous really. FdP 1996 offers an unprecedented olfactory opulence, complexity and super focus which is actually futile to try to capture in writing.
The mouth is saturated with muffled vanilla tones from the Burgundy refill barrels. Well, maybe not “tones” but rather big pounds on the kettle drum with oak barrels. The mousse is marvelously integrated but still vital and present as if it was young. Impressive! The tail is smacked with luscious tropical fruits and have a length we rarely experience. The acid is palpable which we find difficult to understand after nearly two decades of rest. The wine steams of complex notes of petroleum and butterscotch accompanied by a nice crisp bitterness and soft mineral towards the end.
FdP 1996 is an exceptional drink and is not to be missed! Next time we will try it with Halibut with creamy white wine sauce, cremated bacon sprinkles, roasted kale and cauliflower/parmesan/potato purée or butter fried scallop with mushrooms.
Do yourself a favor and invest in this unique collection of life celebrating elixir before it´s gone forever.
