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.

Prefer the 2006, but still a great wine...

Aperitif to lunch with the Wine Nerd Herd 2019 gathering in Paso. Delicate with light bubbles.

Bright lemony lifted nose. Chalky and very fresh. Sweet at the edges and bright and long.

A far cry form the 2006 lots of green apple high acid not much of a middle palate . Lots of better grower Champagnes out there at $50 are better . Should have passed on this vintage and put it in the Millésimé .

One of my favourite Champagnes year in, year out. I’ve had plenty of vintages, and if offered at a fair price, I’m always in. This vintage is a let-down, and I’m happy to own only a few. Totally lacking energy and its classic grace and purity. Plush and disappointing.

Working our way through the “Classic and Appellation “ List of matching Wines to the predominantly Seafood set menu at one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to - Geranium Copenhagen. The 2007 was a difficult vintage in Champagne ie. no Dom that year. Norbert the Somm said an acidic and skinny vintage. Lean on the palate / no Brioche. Some salinity - low fizz. An excellent food wine - can see why it’s in the matching Wines list. I have always found Comtes to be elegant and restrained.

Taittinger visite in Reims. Light straw. Bright and cheery. Not overly complex. Not sure if I’m a buyer (instead waiting for 08 release which they said is still 1 to 1.5 years away)

Tart, has some body. Palate of yeast and lemon rind, with a wisp of something floral. Moderate-length dry finish.

17.5/20 (93/100) Возвращение к вину спустя два года. Нужно сказать, выдержка пошла на пользу, аромат стал чуть более сложным: много тонов поджаренного хлеба, яблочный мармелад, слива, белые грибы. Насыщенное во вкусе с продолжительным послевкусием. Роскошно.
