The exceptionally fine weather conditions in September allowed the abundant crop of grapes to ripen beautifully. So between 23 September and 13 October, we harvested some very fine grapes in excellent conditions of health. The Pinot Noir wines are fruity and full-bodied; the Chardonnay wines show a lot of distinction, the Pinots Meunier wines add a touch of gourmandise.

Wine EnthusiastOne of the best vintages since the great 2002, this is a sophisticated, fruit- and yeast-driven wine. It has a delicate touch, with its white fruit flavors well integrated into the toasty and tangy texture. It will age for many more years.

Wine SpectatorA fine frame of firm acidity structures this lightly toasty version, offering a lively, creamy bead to carry the flavors of apple tarte Tatin, black currant and smoky mineral, which shos hints of grated coconut, orange peel and ground clove. Drink now through 2028.

Wine AdvocateThe dominantly tart apple character of Clicquot's 2004 Brut makes for a piquant and invigorating if somewhat raw overall impression, incorporating as well overt yeastiness and hints of almond, apple pip, and lemon rind. Insofar as there are impressions here that I would deem "mineral," these are a faintly sweaty and slightly metallic note in the finish, which manage to fit the wine's brash personality. I don't fancy this gaining from bottle age, though I readily confess my lack of experience with older representatives.
