It's fascinating to taste the 2004 Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne after the 2002, something I have been able to do on a few occasions. The 2004 is all about minerality, precision and tension. It doesn't have the sheer richness or power of the 2002, but it makes up for that with its crystalline purity and sheer energy. Bright hints of lemon oil, white flowers and crushed rocks are layered into the pointed, vibrant finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2034.

Tasting the 2004 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs reminded me of the first time I drank straight from the Merced river in Yosemite Valley at the height of the winter melt. Earthly pure, effortless?perfect in a way that I am not sure I fully appreciate. I finished my last glass feeling that I missed its "statement" but maybe that is its point. Pure mother earth filtered champagne.
