2004 Cuvée Prestige Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs, Michel Gonet
This is, still!, drinking beautifully. When I tasted it first, 2,5 years ago, I bought some (ok, 10 bottles!). This is my seventh bottle, and it delivers the goods. The nose is deep and wonderful with notes of a cold Tarte Tatin, rosted corn, butter cookies, and apple cider. Just lovely. Has matured a bit but this will hold for 10+ years.
The taste is round, semi mature and finely tuned with notes of lemon cream, almond paste, dried flowers and warm rocks. A lovely length and a persistent finish. Drinking well today and will keep. Great then, great in between and great now.
