Blanc de Blancs Champagne

The pale golden yellow colour is illuminated by almost fluorescent green highlights.

The bead, particularly fine and abundant, rises steadily to form a light ring of bubbles.

The very fresh nose opens on contrasting intense yet subtle grilled, toasty notes. These are followed by aromas of candied citrus peel, lemon and vanilla tart, roasted almonds and finally a floral hint of dried flowers and lime blossom.

The initial impression on the palate is expressive and powerful, dominated by the vivacious citrus fruit, especially ripe lemon. Mid palate the flavour is more delicate, with flavours of caramelised grapefruit. The lengthy rich finish reveals sweet liquorice notes.

A perfect marriage of delicacy and intensity with freshness and harmony, Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2004 reveals the full ageing potential typical of the great Chardonnays from the Cote des Blancs.
