Wine Advocate-Parker :
The straw-yellow/white-golden colored 1996 Femme de Champagne Millésime Brut (Lot L0271 NM, disgorged in September 2010) offers a clear and intense, concentrated bouquet of white and dried fruits along with lemon and some tropical flavors. On the fresh and silky textured palate, there is a remarkable finesse and lightness, and the finish reveals not just a very nice maturity and complexity, but also stunning aromatic stone fruit aromas. The finish is pretty juicy and aromatic, and displays pineapple and succulent nectarine flavors, as well as vitalizing lemon aromas. Stunningly fresh and vital for a 20-year-old Champagne.
