2005 Taittinger "Comtes de Champagne" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "With just a touch of bottle age giving a toasty character, this impressive wine is already showing some maturity. That said, the apple and citrus character, the mineral tight texture and crisp acidity promise some aging. The wine conveys a sense of elegance, intensity and richness. Drink now, but the wine will also age." (6/2014) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Vibrant pear and melon aromas are complicated by suggestions of ginger, brioche and smoky minerals. Dry, smoky and precise, offering intense orchard and pit fruit flavors that gain weight with aeration. A dusty mine ...Read More »

2005 Thienot Brut Champagne

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Fresh orange and pear aromas are complicated by chamomile, honey, herbs and fresh porcini. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering intense orchard fruit flavors braced by gentle acidity. A smoky, leesy nuance lingers on the long, supple finish. Drinking well now and showing good complexity." (11/2012) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Champagne exhibits both the freshness of the vintage and a sense of toasty maturity. Baked apple aromas are touched with notes of almonds and cookies. The palate is substantially weighty with a density of flavors and a rich, full after ...Read More »

All of the older vintages of Brison come direct from the cellars in Noe-les-Mallets where they were made. Older Champagne with this kind of provenance is a rarity and a treat!

2005 Jacquesson "Champs Cain" Avize Brut Champagne

96 points James Suckling: "Very attractive fresh yeasty bread dough notes. Really impressive freshness on this long aged Blanc de Blanc, with chalky lemon and lime essence, some amazing finesse and aromatic purity here. The palate has a wealth of layering, texturally superior. It has impressive build and depth, and acidity sits under richly flavorsome lemon and peach fruit. Long, fine and focused with contained power. Drink now or for five or more years." (7/2015) 93 points Vinous: "Jacquesson's 2005 Avize-Champ Gain is all about volume, depth and texture. Dried apricot, honey, smoke and mint flesh ou ...Read More »

2005 Bollinger "Vieilles Vignes Françaises" Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne

2005 produced exceptional Pinot Noir for Bollinger, sourced from Chaudes Terres and Clos St Jacques, the two vineyards in Champagne that survived phylloxera and are still on their original rootstocks. This special wine was aged in the cellar for more than twice the amount of time called for by appellation rules and given zero dosage. From the winery: "Deep gold. The colour of a bright autumn morning. Very intense, characteristic of mature vintages. Quince, honey, dried apricots and candied fruits flavours. Tertiary aromas of grilled, toasted bread. A rou...

2005 Jacquesson "Dizy - Corne Bautray" Brut Champagne

93 points Vinous: "The 2005 Dizy-Corne Bautray, Chardonnay from vines planted in 1960, is wonderfully nuanced and complex. A warm, resonant bouquet laced with smoke, dried apricots, mint and white pepper. The style is rich, ample and resonant, with gorgeous textural depth and volume. I would prefer to drink the 2005 sooner rather than later, as the flavors are already quite forward, although the wine does seem to freshen up a touch with time in the glass. Wild flowers, mint, Poire William and sage add the final layers of nuance on the high-toned, expressive finish. Disgorg ...Read More »

2005 Jacquesson "Aÿ - Vauzelle Terme" Brut Champagne

92 points Vinous: "The 2005 Aÿ-Vauzelle Terme is the most polished of Jacquesson's 2005 single-vineyard Champagnes. Silky and nuanced on the palate, the Vauzelle Terme highlights the more understated side of the vintage. Hints of chalk, red cherry, plum, mint and wild flowers are laced into the highly expressive finish. Today, the Vauzelle Terme comes across as a bit weightless to the point of being a bit on the ethereal side. It will be interesting to see if the wine acquires a bit more depth in bottle. Disgorged October 2014. Dosage was 2.5 grams/liter. (AG)" (7/2015)
