SKU #1137185 92 points Vinous

 (a 50/50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir; L43PZ110399R): Light, bright yellow. Vibrant citrus fruit and floral aromas are complicated by notes of buttered toast, smoky minerals and iodine. Sappy and precise, offering intense Meyer lemon and pear flavors complemented by a deeper-pitched suggestion of honey. Spicy notes linger on the finish, which shows excellent clarity and smoky persistence. (JR)  (11/2013)

 Richly smoky and creamy on the palate, with lively acidity and flavors of creamed pear, crushed berry, fleur de sel and spring blossom. Mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2024. (AN)  (12/2014)

A high yield and high quality vintage with crisp and focused characteristics. The 2004 champagnes are just starting to find their stride and the '04 LP has found its. Filled with blossoming aromatics of lemon, lime and white floral notes, it is vintage like the old days- long, cool and wet. The acidity is leaner and longer on the palate while the mix of mature and fresh orchard fruit interact with a subtle toasted almond note keeping the wine polished and textured.

I love when back-vintages of Champagne show up in our warehouse, all aged and more ready-to-drink than ever! This Grand Cru charmer from 2004, a classic vintage in every right, is in a beautiful spot right now. It is displaying beautiful chalkiness, meyer lemon notes, pear and a very subtle, intriguing toast. This is a delicate and subtle bottle of bubbles, worthy of a discerning palate.

More '04, please! This cool vintage, described as "classic" among Champagne growers and negociants, will rarely disappoint, particularly for fans of acidity, ageability and wines that lead with finesse and balance as opposed to richness, toast and power. So Elegant, softly textured and well put together, this was easily my favorite of a small vertical of vintage LP we tasted earlier today (yes, I know, it's a tough job....)

Another great bottle of Vintage Champagne from the wonderfully classic vintage that is 2004‚Äč. Lively and lifted, this wine possesses a vibrancy that carries it from stem to stern. Pithy and fresh on the entry, lemon cake and sweet almond, a touch of Meyer lemon zest as well to add verve. The palate has a rich lees quality to add balance and depth, more shortbread than brioche. Minerality and lift carry the day though, fresh and clean, lovely vintage offering.

I have been telling everyone who will listen that the 2004 vintage in Champagne is one not to miss. The region used to get "classic" vintages like this twice a decade, seasons that offered even weather, cool conditions and produced wines that are streamlined, bright and mineral. Not anymore... A vintage like 2004 has not come along since 1988, and there have been none since. This LP has all of the virtues of the vintage; spectacular length, elegance and lift, as well as the toasty richness that one expects from a long-aged vintage bottle from a great house. Don't miss this!
Top Value! Drink from 2015 to 2029
