Sleek, with mouthwatering acidity and an aromatic base note of chalky minerality, this features well-meshed flavors of black currant pâte de fruit, pastry, candied ginger and almond skin. The finely detailed, creamy mousse lends lasting finesse to the finish. Drink now through 2025. – AN

This is a rich and creamy Champagne with a lively mousse, giving it a forward fruit character.

This is a rich and creamy Champagne with a lively mousse, giving it a forward fruit character. Slowly the depth and concentration of the wine come through, with a white fruit flavor and hints of grapefruit and toasty yeast, which all promising good aging.

A very complex and powerful edition that really speaks of strong pinot noir fruits. The nose has dense darker citrus, lemon, chalk and fresh nutty complexity - the palate is assertive and unevolved.

The nose has dense darker citrus, lemon, chalk and fresh nutty complexity - the palate is assertive and unevolved. Really solid pinot drive here, gently toasty finish. Much more to come if cellared on cork. - Nick Stock

A cool, youthfully rich 2004, this starts from an austere place and grows increasingly expressive as it opens in the glass.

A cool, youthfully rich 2004, this starts from an austere place and grows increasingly expressive as it opens in the glass. Complex depths of flavor develop out of a white fruit note, layering chalk and lime-citrus notes with cedar and pale smoke. Approachable now with enough air, this will develop beautifully over the next ten years.

Heady aromas of orange, white peach and smoky minerals, with a note of buttered toast adding depth. Densely packed citrus and pit fruit flavors show chewy texture and a bright mineral quality that adds vivacity. Rich but lively and precise, finishing very long, with notes of candied fig and toasty lees.

As with the corresponding (and varietally identical) rose, Clicquot’s 2004 Brut La Grande Dame is vivacious and buoyant, with lemon and grapefruit set in entertaining counterpoint to almond paste and vanilla-tinged, tart-edged baked apple. Saline oyster liquor adds another, savory dimension in a lingering finish, while hints of chamomile and jasmine serve for aromatic allure. This delightful bottling might well achieve genuine profundity over the next two or three years. - David Schildknecht
