I promise myself every time never to listen to random professional reviewers and ignore consensus, but then comes around 50Eur bottle of Hennessy. I could not help myself. Sorry. For those who are still wondering is Hennessy better than Martell or Remy or .... They are all below average garbage. If I knew, I would have sold this bottle without opening it.
Regret buying this as it seems to be not a producer but negociant in France who is making these. to appear older than they really are.
1997 Champagne Paul Déthune Ambonnay
This Champagne turned out to be very good. Still full of fizz and intense yellow color with flower-nectar nose and strong yellow fruit flavours, not very long finish and mild acidity makes it less than great , but at 28Eur a bottle this vintage is a bargain. Very enjoyable wine.
