Côte Millésime Grand Cru Champagne Blend 2005

Gorgeous. Rich and vinous with and underlining tension and minerality. Speaks of Le Mesnil sur Oger and vintage well. The complexity of fruit and texture offering up plenty of contemplation. Kudos for harmony and length across the palate. 100 CH, 11/2018 disgorgement, 4 g/l dosage. — a month ago

Green tinged color. Rich, expansive, bold champagne. A bit over the top but quite good still — 2 years ago

Acidic, but a ton of flavor. Green apple. Very fresh. — 4 years ago

Montagne Millésime Extra Brut Grand Cru Champagne Blend 2004

Apple cider is the dominant flavor here. Meyer lemon also comes through on the palate. Flavors on the palate dance around changing from floral to fruit then to bright minerality. The nose is somewhat closed and unimpressive. Honestly, I prefer the richness of the NV versus the lean style of the 2004. Perhaps in 10 years, this baby will be ready? — 5 years ago

Montagne Millésime 1er Cru Extra Brut Blanc De Blancs Champagne 1999

Still so much energy hard to believe it’s as old as it is. Very fun bottle. Bereche is so reliably good. — a year ago

Really enjoyed this. Elegant and moderate.

Côte Millésime 1er Cru Champagne Blend 2008

Such great value! While I feel doesn't have the Bereche typicity, it's so elegant and poised. Fruiter, more powerful, less mineral, but bolstered by racy acidity.

I think Vinous nails my tasting notes, so I'm just gonna leave that here:

"The 2008 Côte Premier Cru, a blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir from Vertus, is striking. Translucent and expressive, the 2008 captures a gorgeous, crystalline expression of Vertus Chardonnay, with a little added body and texture from the Pinot. Sweet floral and honeyed notes wrap around the expressive, precise finish. There is a lot to like here. Dosage is 6 grams/liter."
