Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2005 is a very expressive champagne offering generosity, volume and complexity. It already offers a very pleasurable drinking, but its structure and richness suggest that it will be a very interesting Champagne to lay down.

With just a touch of bottle age giving a toasty character, this impressive wine is already showing some maturity. That said, the apple and citrus character, the mineral tight texture and crisp acidity promise some aging. The wine conveys a sense of elegance, intensity and richness. Drink now, but the wine will also age. Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Rating 95, 1st June 2014
Maybe this should have been launched before the 2004 as it is broader and richer. Complex, round nose with real substance and then peacock's tail of aromas on the finish. Relatively but not worryingly low acid. Jancis Robinson, Rating 18/20, 25th December 2013.
Winery Tasting Notes
Very intense bouquet, opening with notes of pastry cream of great aromatic richness. The finish is accompanied by a few lightly toasted notes.
The attack is frank with good tension, good structure and a hint of fruit wood. The mid-palate is smooth and voluptuous, with flavours of ripe fruit such as pink grapefruit. The long, rich, complex finish is accompanied by a pleasant freshness.
