Champagne Blanc de Blancs Millésime 2004 tasting notes :
To the eye
The champagne has a straw yellow colour with a yellow-green glint, with silvery yellow reflections. Deep, luminous and clear, it is filled with delicate bubbles that create a fluid meniscus.
To the nose
The first nose displays a lot of purity, with scents of acacia, limestone, white pepper, iodine and lemon zest. When aerated, it develops notes of cream, pruned almond, verbena, with fresh and airy accents reminiscent of fennel and Vichy mint.
On the palate
The first impression is supple and fresh with a smooth, velvety effervescence. The wine opens on the palate with a burst of white and fleshy fruits reminiscent of peach and pear. This fluidity is enhanced by notes of peppermint, a lemony acidity and a very pure limestone minerality. The elegant structure continues with a fresh and intense finish, enhanced by good bitterness, peppery, aniseed and mentholated notes.
