From the Critics:
- " Another fascinating and complex wine, the 2004 Brut Premier Cru presents an intriguing combination of richness from the extended aging on its lees married to the pure energy of Vertus. Dried pears, spices, hazelnuts and tobacco are layered into the expressive, creamy finish. The 2004 presents beautiful nuance in its aromas and flavors. At the same time, my sense is that it is best enjoyed over the next few years. The 2004 was aged partly in barrel (1/3rd) and dosage was 4.5 grams per liter. Disgorgement date: July 05, 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019." -
- "Bright yellow-gold. Mineral- and floral-accented aromas of candied citrus fruits, melon and fig. Lively and precise, offering very good depth to its tangy orange zest and honeydew flavors. Tightens up with air and finishes on a chalky mineral note, with excellent clarity and length. I'd bet on this Champagne aging slowly and gracefully." -
