BONNAIRE  ‘BLANC de BLANCS’ | Cramant | Champagne | Frankrike | Bonnaire | 100CH | Swedish importer: Sigva | SBnr 75878 329 sek  | TASTING NOTE ‘Lighter and less concentrated than the vintage wine, but wonderfully enjoyable and pure, with a tense taste of citrus fruits that will develop well in the cellar.’ RJpoints 79(85)

BONNAIRE  ‘BLANC de BLANCS’ 2004 | Cramant | Champagne | Frankrike | Bonnaire | 100CH | Swedish importer: Sigva | ? sek  | TASTING NOTE ‘This is one of those “light green birchbud wines”. What I mean by that? Well, if you have read an old description of young Clos du Mesnil then you will remember that I put the question about when the birches are at their loveliest … I think you got the point. Bonnaire’s 04 is of course embarrassingly newborn, but oh dear! so beautiful in its delicate spring apparel. During 2012 the buttery maturity arrived.’ RJpoints 90(93)

DIEBOLT-VALLOIS  ‘BLANC de BLANCS’ | Cramant | Champagne | Frankrike | Diebolt-Vallois | 100CH | Swedish importer: PrimeWineGroup | SBnr 75878 329 sek  | TASTING NOTE ‘Like a summer meadow featuring most flowers. A weak element of almond and light pear fruitiness. Charming and promising.’  RJpoints 83(87)

DIEBOLT-VALLOIS  ‘FLEUR de PASSION’ 2004 | Cramant | Champagne | Frankrike | Diebolt-Vallois | 100CH | Swedish importer: PrimeWineGroup | SBnr 77673 750 sek  | TASTING NOTE ‘Young and graceful with chiselled elegance and floral beauty. Some oakiness is starting to emerge.’  RJpoints 93(93)

DIEBOLT-VALLOIS  ‘FLEUR de PASSION’ 1998 | Cramant | Champagne | Frankrike | Diebolt-Vallois | 100CH | Swedish importer: PrimeWineGroup |  ca 1 000 sek  | TASTING NOTE ‘Young and graceful with chiselled elegance and floral beauty. Some oakiness is starting to emerge.’  RJpoints 93(93)

DEUTZ ‘BLANC de BLANCS’ 2007 | Aÿ | Champagne | Frankrike | Deutz | 100CH | Swedish importer: Swedish Brand |  SBnr 99522 599 sek  | TASTING NOTE ‘Wonderful to get to know the wines before launch, but here we are talking only potential not drink joy of the moment. Too much apples and too perfumed now, but with a classy and promising structure.’  RJpoints 84(90)

DEUTZ ‘BLANC de BLANCS’ 1998 | Aÿ | Champagne | Frankrike | Deutz | 100CH | Swedish importer: Swedish Brand |  ca 1 500 sek  | TASTING NOTE ‘I was anything but impressed by this prematurely decent creation, but it has marched rapidly onwards to greatness. The latest bottle was brilliant with all the beauty one can expect of this stylish, ultra-sophisticated wine. Pearl-necklace mousse, subtly floral, with a slight biscuity aroma and sweet citrus-splashed breezes that whirl onwards with the same lightness as a midsummer fairy.’ RJpoints 93(94)

BILLECART-SALMON ‘BLANC de BLANCS’ 1999 | Mareuil-sûr-Aÿ | Champagne | Frankrike | BIllecart-Salmon | 100CH | Swedish importer: PrimeWineGroup |  ca 1 500 sek  | TASTING NOTE ‘With stony acidic Chardonnay from Le Mesnil as a base, fruit from Avize as well as creaminess from Chouilly and Cramant, this young, crystal-clear ’99 has everything needed for a really great Blanc de Blancs. When freshly poured there are notes of egg toddy, but they are quickly transformed when aired, winding up closer to Sabayon, with roasted almonds and lemon cream supported by, naturally, a blast-wave of white flowers.’  RJpoints 92(96)

TAITTINGER  ‘COMTES de CHAMPAGNE’ 2004 | Reims | Champagne | Frankrike | Taittinger | 100CH | Swedish importer: Fondberg |  SBnr 99221 1 200 sek  | TASTING NOTE ‘Very unexpectedly appeared this vintage up in Prague in 2012. Ultra-youthful, almost distressing fresh mineral and rock hard stony toasted. Everything is in place though and time will bring classic beauty.’ RJpoints 91(94)
