Shows lovely balance, with a chinalike backbone of acidity, finely meshed with a creamy mousse and rich and toasty flavors of roasted hazelnut, creamed apple, lemon parfait and spun honey. A vein of smoky minerality echoes on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 700 cases imported. Wine Spectator

Grass, brioche and plenty of mid palate weight... A great prestige cuvée for current drinking.

There's been so many Comtes in the last few years; can't complain... evolved yet racy, this is in a great spot at present.

Ripping acidity. Fresh brioche. Golden apple. With oysters it was heavenly.

Beautiful, but it doesn't touch the magic of the '04. Less vibrancy and naked but equally pure.

This was explosive. So fresh but so concentrated. Brioche, hazelnut, toasted meringue. Powerful, wine. Really stopped me in my tracks. #tdc
