Still a very young Champagne. Light yellow in color. Fat texture and some sulfur which dissipated. Medium acidity but with Chardonnay fruit semi hidden behind. Citrus, lime, hazelnuts and brioche. Pleasant medium mousse. Needs more time.
WOTN and absolutely singing tonight; rich, full and deep with notes of toffee and spice, both freshness and smoothness, this seems to be in a perfect place. (- from HSA, #celebratingblindtastingchampionship)
A beautiful and profound wine, the 2000 Comtes delivers elegant fruit and deep lovely minerals. With impeccable balance this Champagne is without doubt a masterpiece. The palate is perfectly integrated with a creamy and silky fine grained mousse. This wine does not flirt with its power, which is certainly there, but rather on well-behaved and discrete elegance. A lovely wine which deserves all the merit it could possibly get. A tremendous effort!
