The 2004 vintage:
In contrast to the previous year, the vine growth was regular and progressed without incident while the bunches were of a significant number and size. The weather remained moderate for some time, with the month of August being particularly cool: the vintage was defined by the dry heat of the final weeks before the harvest, which began on September 24th, with the grapes displaying excellent ripeness and health.
Tasting note by Richard Geoffroy:
On the nose, aromas of almond and powdered cocoa develop gradually into white fruit with hints of dried flowers. Classic toasted notes give a rounded finish and denote a fully realized maturity. The Champagne’s full taste has great length with a sappy, spicy note.
