Champagne Collet Brut Millésime 2004
This cooperative, situated in Aÿ in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, has produced a rich, structured wine from this fine vintage. It has tension, with a taut mineral character along with excellent white fruit flavor. Even at 11 years, the wine is young and will benefit from some bottle age. Drink from 2017.
A fresh and balanced version, with hints of juicy pear, ginger biscuit, honey and lemon curd. Easy-drinking, presenting a lightly creamy finish. Drink now through 2019. 1,600 cases made.
