Tightly wound. A hint of sweetness. Great fruit. Too young now.

Light straw color, lots of bubbles and nice energy in the glass. Has an exciting nose that expresses Blanc de Blanc attributes and the potential of a great young champagne. Opened for 30 min before trying it, I think it came out of the blocks as closed and not showing much. With air it opens up somewhat – but this definitely needs years more lying on its side to gain some age and complexity. Notes of citrus and some toast, some creamy floral notes, some river stone and some fresh cut apples. Wanted to try this out, and will wait for another 5 years before touching the next one. Reminded me of the 2002 when I first tried it. Will be great, and patience is needed to watch it develop and grow up.

Happy New Year! A great bottle, just epic. Obviously very a young, but still magnificent!

My favorite 08 for current drinking when comparing to the Dom & Cristal that I had recently. Rich & intense with a creamy texture, citrus, pear, apple, mineral & pastry dough.

absolutely amazing every time. Can’t keep my hands off this bottling though it will improve with time. Best Comtes I’ve ever had. Creamy with yellow orchard fruits and citrus all buttressed by classy acidity. Great wine.
