    (Mes VV DHONDT Brut BdB) Dhondt

    Dear Friends,

    When we first pioneered this producer in the US a number of years ago, nobody cared. Since then, Jose Dhondt has gone on to become the "elder statesman" of the boutique grower-Champagne movement and it can be argued that Dhondt's wine is still the very best. Rarely does one find the titillating combination of filigreed mystery and lace-like femininity in Champagne but Dhondt's best bottlings routinely showcase this style and the 2004 is another in a growing line of classics.

    I am pressed with this question all the time (and rarely answer it because it is so subjective) but, if I had to pick one Champagne to drink and nothing else, Dhondt would rank right up there. The 2004 is really a stunning effort and the expectations for this producer are so high already that it's hard to believe the wine actually meets them:

    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as a strong example of the phrase "the cr_me rises to the top"

    This parcel is directly from the cellars at Jose Dhondt

    2004 Jose Dhondt Champagne Blanc de Blanc Brut "Mes Vielles Vignes"

    2004 Jose Dhondt Champagne Blanc de Blanc Brut "Mes Vielles Vignes" 1.5lt

    This wine will be available for local pick up in 2-3 weeks and will ship during the first available shipping window (probably around Thanksgiving or early Dec/weather permitting).

    Thank you,

    Jon Rimmerman
