Last of a 3-pack I bought a few years ago. Should have bought more! Thankfully the ridiculous pricing for the 2008 keeps this 2007 an easy choice when looking for more great champagne.

Having had the 2006, 2007 and 2008 all within the last 6 months or so, it’s fun to see the differences. 2006 seems to be a bigger champagne in regards to richness, yet still has great structure…2008 is wound up crazy tight, extremely chiseled and age worthy…the 2007 is a more accessible version of the three with lots of similarities to 2006.

Right down the middle in terms of style (doesn’t come across reductive or oxidative in profile). Tart lemon, yeasty, chalk, and a hint of nuttiness on the nose. Comtes always has this kiss of freshly baked lemon scone note on the nose to me. Not as multidimensional as 2006, but tons of layers here both aromatically and on the palate. Continuously evolving revealing limestone, powder sugar dusted lemon bars, and roasted almonds. Lemon-lime mineral grip isn’t as prevalent as the 2008 on the finish. This can certainly age, but with how good it is now, pop and enjoy!

Beautiful apple and citrus with loads of chalk on the nose. A very nice amount of acid to cut through some beautiful aged Gouda.

This was outrageously tasty. Almost drank the whole bottle myself. Hey it’s not my fault if my friends and family are slow drinkers!

Opening night in the backyard after all our work to get it ready. Let’s just say it is a high maintenance yard.

Great bottle of bubbles to kick back and enjoy with friends.

Beautiful mouthfeel, beautiful acidity, Granny Smith apples, lime & lemon zest, pineapple, chalky power, sea fossils, saline, grey volcanics, saline, dry yeast, spring flowers & yellow lilies with polish for days.

Toasty, creme brulée, citrus, nice acid, cream on the finish. Obviously has a lot of time left, but is certainly approachable now. What a nice Blanc de Blancs to have with some caviar and share with my good friend Kuan Lim.
