Comtes de Champagne Brut Rosé Champagne 2007

Delectable Wine

The 2007 Comtes de Champagne Rosé is a total knock-out. Racy and exuberant in the glass, the 2007 wraps around the palate with stunning textural depth and resonance. The 15% still Pinot adds structure and persistence to a creamy, inviting Rosé Champagne that will leave readers weak at the knees. Hints of rose petal, dried cherry, cinnamon and dried flowers meld into the sublime finish. This is about as good as it gets. Wow! (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2018) — 15 days ago

Champagne Brut Nature Zero Dosage

Domestic chores day, so just now getting to the relaxing part of the afternoon, finally.

I'm believing this is a Pinot Meunièr dominant wine. Color is a deep straw yellow. Nose is sugar roasted nuts and fresh yellow cherry (I just bought a sizeable bag yesterday and already ate half!). Palate is perplexing, this is zero dosage but it's damn sweet, wow this fruit!!! Lingering saline/mineral note on the wicked finish, this is a fine bottle. New nose and palate notes are revealing with air and warming.

Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 1996

Medium gold, maybe just a little lighter than the 95 next to it. Great nose with persistent tiny bubbles. Not as complex or developed as it’s older sibling. Notes of apricot, lemons, and stones. Has the material to be the better Wine of the two but it’s still young, needs more time. BDay dinner 2/12. — 13 days ago

Campania Remensis Extra Brut Rosé Champagne Blend 2013

Delectable Wine

The 2013 Campania Remensis is one of the softer, more understated wines in the range. Soft and pliant, with attractive floral overtones, the 2013 is already quite open in feel. Drink this pretty, inviting Rosé over the next few years. The 2013 is 65% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 5% still Pinot. Disgorged March 2017. Dosage is 3 grams per liter.

Clos d'Ambonnay Brut Blanc de Noirs Champagne Pinot Noir 2002

Delectable Wine

The 2002 Clos d’Ambonnay is another spectacular Champagne from Krug. In fact, the 2002 may very well be the most sensual Clos d’Ambonnay yet. Opulent, intense and yet light on its feet, the 2002 has it all. Hints of ash, graphite and smoke wrap around a core of rich Pinot fruit in a powerful, riveting wine of the highest level. Chef de Caves Eric Lebel describes 2002 as a perfect growing season. “We had sun we wanted it and rain we needed it,” he told me recently. The Krug team captured everything the vintage had to offer, certainly to a far greater degree than they did with the 2002 Clos du Mesnil or Vintage. Readers who can find the 2002 Clos d’Ambonnay and who can look past the price will experience a seriously phenomenal Champagne. That’s all there is to it.
