Comtes de Champagne Brut Champagne Blend Rosé 2004

Just a few pics of the wines from last night’s monthly 4th Friday. Too many bottles to try!

There is A LOT to like here right now. Delicate aromatics of rose petal, strawberry cream and cherry tart but it turns more powerful and rich on the palate. Strawberry shortbread, red fruit skin, chalky limestone and a finish that turns slightly herbal. The structure here shows that this will be open for business for quite a while.

First time tasting a Comtes Champers Rose. This wine was incredibly balanced from a fruit perspective. Sweeter strawberry compote up front. Nose and entry with some herbal quality about it. Bubbles medium sized here with augmented presentation towards the finish which IMO kind of threw the structure of this one off a bit. Gonna last another 15 years easily.

Vigneron Passionne Brut Grand Cru Rosé Champagne Blend

Under the radar grower Champange. If you like Pina coladas....wait that’s something else. Tiny bubbles well balanced fruit and minerals. A classic delicate Rosé.  — 13 days ago

Anne-Marie’s birthday with her besty, Magnolia. Having a great time in Aruba. We are very partial to Ruinart with any label. This one is honied, toasty and fresh. Soft mousse, reminding me of the Krug that Shawn pulled last week. Loving life with my wifey - we are blessed 😍

André Clouet

Un Jour de 1911 Brut Champagne Blend

The 'Cuvée 1911' is an absolutely thrilling bottle of Champagne from winemaker Jean-François Clouet. Composed of 100% Pinot Noir, which sourced from Clouet’s ten best lieux-dits in the Grand Cru villages of Bouzy and Ambonnay. This Cuvée is a blend of vintages, primarialy consisting of 2008, with ’07, ’09, ’10 finishing the blend. It spent more than 6 years aging on its lees before its disgorgement in November, 2017. The wine itself is simply remarkable, as it is beautifully intense on the nose, with aromatics of Pazazz apple, toast, florals and minerals all instantly drawing you in. Even more captivating is its combination of weight, tension and gorgeous textural compisition. Wonderful flavors of orchard fruits and citrus continue to impress as they come together with a beautiful salinity character which persists through the pretty finish. An absolutely striking Champagne, which will continue to evolve gracefully for many years. — 14 days ago

Brut Dream Vintage Bouzy Grand Cru Chardonnay 2006

The 2006 Dream Vintage is a beautiful wine from Clouet. It displays a beautiful golden color and offers wonderful aromatics of apples and poached pear along with buttered brioche, white florals, salty minerals and a touch of hazelnut praline. On the palate this is broad shouldered, with plenty of depth, yet it remains precise and beautifully balanced with a lovely combination of acidity and minerality that persists through the finish. While this fantastic Champagne is drinking remarkably well today, it could also last another decade. — 14 days ago
