This Champagne is pale gold in the glass with fine, pinpoint bubbles. On the nose, aromas of white fruit and wild berries precede flavors of toast and yeast. Excellent minerality and refined acidity culminate in a lasting, full-bodied, round finish.
A superbly balanced wine that boasts a seamless intensity of apple fruits, soft citrus and beautiful acidity. It has its rich moments, with a hint of pineapple, easily absorbed into the great elegance.
Once again, I am deeply impressed with the 2005 Brut Millesime Champagne, a truly lovely wine in what was a very challenging year. Pastry, almonds, pears, apricots and smoke are all layered together beautifully in the glass. Burnished overtones add an element of resonance that is hugely appealing. This is a terrific showing.
