A friend pulled this out, already had been opened and the labels in taters. Very distinct bottle shape.

Wow, very little fizz, you could hear the cork being pulled off. On the nose, it was very high toned acidity, oxidized a bit, something slightly medicinal but pleasantly so. On the palate, ... Nuts, All Nuts, crunchy nuts, just pretty!! I've never had a champagne that old. amazing!
