2004 La Grande Dame follows 1998. This is a mind-boggling statement, considering the years in between. No other house, bar none, skipped these five vintages. The endorsement that this in itself places on 2004 in the Clicquot cellars cannot be overstated. And the wine delivers. My goodness, does it deliver! Close acquaintances of La Grande Dame will fondly recall the layered complexity of 1998. Six years younger, 2004 is breathtakingly pristine and youthful. Its defining feature is its minerality, its deep and all-pervading chalk. An exceedingly refined fruit profile is alive with energy and awe-inspiring persistence, uniting red fruits, lemon and grapefruit zest with a flicker of mixed spice and toast.

True to form, Demarville presented this wine first, not last; I have never encountered this approach before, the rationale lying in the complete nature of the wine. A blend of 61% pinot noir and 39% chardonnay from grand cru vineyards, it was disgorged last year, the dosage 7g/l. The fine mousse helps generate beautiful mouthfeel to its array of rounded peach and apple fruit, contrasting notes of cream and mineral dancing through the long travel in the mouth.

This is a rich and creamy Champagne with a lively mousse, giving it a forward fruit character. Slowly the depth and concentration of the wine come through, with a white fruit flavor and hints of grapefruit and toasty yeast, which all promising good aging.
