I think in both cases they are comparable to the great 1995s and if you look at prices for 1995s they sell for double. So buy those 2004s now, they can be drunk now but they will be even better in a decade time and will make you smile I think.

But 1996 is also gorgeous of course and for example Dom 1996 is a great great champagne. So in short they are both great vintages in my mind. 2004 is not at the level of 1995, but in the case of Dom and Comtes I feel those are. Hope that helps.
