    April 25, 2021 - I just opened another bottle of the 2005 Gardet Champagne. I stand by the comments I made earlier. But I actually liked this second bottle slightly better than the 2008 Drappier Grande Sendree that I also recently enjoyed. So I think a 93 point score is justified. If you can can find this, buy it and enjoy!

    April 16, 2021 - Pretty maize color with fine bubbles. Nose of mango, tangerine, and honey that carries over to the palate. Good acid balance with a touch of sweetness. There is none of the mouth puckering tartness in some of these small grower Champagnes. A terrific starter to some pre-game wine drinking that evening.

    February 15, 2021 - 2005 certainly isn't the most heralded vintage in Champagne, but this wine shows that nice examples were still possible in the vintage.

    When the wine hit my tongue, I first got strong minerality and toastiness, which led the way to lemon, and then apple. The apple and mineral flavors carried through to a clean finish.

    This was a somewhat late release for Gardet - they took great care of the wine. It's in nice balance and is very ready to enjoy now. If you're looking for a Champagne to have with a delicate meal like simply prepared white fish, this may be a little too heavy for you. It should pair well with everything else.

    December 31, 2020 - Pronounced apple. Tangy lemons with a fairly long finish. Profusion of persistent bubbles that lasted to the very end, probably the most I have ever seen.
