All the champagnes were drunk when we were sitting at the table, so on the pictures for which I give a link, you can see the color.
We stood up to drink the 1911 in another room, so I did not take a picture of the glass of 1911.
So color was little more grey and intense, but not that much.

The pictures of the dinner with moët 1911 can be seen there : DINNER The 1911 is really a great wine full of balance and complexity. But the 1964 and the 1952 (Dry) were of a significantly equal quality. We drank 2002, 1992, 1985, 1975, 1964, 1911 and 1952 I have a special feeling for the 1985 still...

I will try my best. Yesterday I was in the cellar of Moët & Chandon for a dinner with great chefs and we drank Moët NV, 2002, 1992, 2002 rosé, 1975 in magnum and 1952. The 1975 was a pure delight with a nose of a purity which was spectacular. The 1952 was great too. But my preference was for the 1975.

1929 is among the top of the greatest years in every region. Some people find that all the old wines are alike, but when you drink more and more old wines, you can recognise characteristics of the regions. Of course, one has to be very humble because mistakes are possible. With this Hermitage 1929, ...
