Regardless of vintage it never disappoints. Beautiful combination of yeast and minerals with fruit playing a supporting role. Solid core of acidity. I’m sure more life ahead but enjoy now while your ‘06 & ‘08 mature

Grass, brioche and plenty of mid palate weight... A great prestige cuvée for current drinking.

There's been so many Comtes in the last few years; can't complain... evolved yet racy, this is in a great spot at present.
