TASTING NOTES

"I am thrilled with the way the 2004 Comtes de Champagne continues to evolve in bottle. A few years ago, the 2004 was quite focused and linear, in the style of the vintage, but more recently, the wine has begun to fill out beautifully. The 2004 remains bright, with a full range of citrus, white flower and mineral nuances that dance on the palate. A brisk, saline-infused finish rounds things out beautifully in a Comtes that impresses for its crystalline purity. I expect the 2004 will always remain a bit cool next to the more opulent 2002, but it is still drop-dead gorgeous." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"A rich and enticing aroma of roasted hazelnut heralds this elegant blanc de blancs, with flavors of pastry, poached apple, crystallized honey and candied ginger riding the finely detailed mousse. This is a touch smoky, presenting a resonant minerality on the finish. Drink now through 2029. 500 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"Highly aromatic with citrus and a touch of cedar but also something slightly sulphurous. There's quite a woody note on the palate with a slightly sour aftertaste. Wonder if this is in perfect condition? Excellent persistence and leaves your gums tingling." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
