***Top 100 Wines of 2010*** Full, creamy and soft, this is a rich Champagne, very much a food wine. It has great ripe swathes of peach and pineapple flavors, rounded by toast. While 2000 is not a vintage for aging, this opulent Champagne may be the exception.
Light, bright gold with an energetic bead. Precise lemon zest and orange aromas are complemented by deeper notes of pear skin, honey, almond and chamomile, with a subtle mineral quality gaining strength with air. Youthful and surprisingly lithe for a wine from this house, with spicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors joined by smoky minerality and nuttiness on the back end. The honey note returns on the long, spicy sappy finish. I like this wine's balance and cut.
A full, robust Champagne, delivering plenty of gingerbread, toast and citrus aromas and flavors. Balanced in an extroverted way, with a fine texture, this is approachable now. Should continue to develop. Drink now through 2020.
Rounder and softer than a traditional Bollinger vintage, this 2000 is filled with citrus flavors and darker tones of toasted nuts. The richness of the wine suggests pairing it with salmon in a beurre noisette, or the milk-poached poussin at The Modern in NYC, served with linden flower sauce, wood ear mushroom compote and mustard greens.
Light gold. Very full on and open, even verge-of-oxidized on the nose. Very broad and a little oaky. Lots of mass on the palate but no sweetness. Bone dry and admirably distinctive. Very fine, dense, tiny-beaded wine with layers. Demands attention. Real tingle on the finish. Though it's not desperately long..? Some people might find this a little bit too much. (17.5/20 points)
