Jacquesson Dizy Corne Bautray 2004 (95AG) (1.5L)
94 WA 94 IWC
"The 2004 Brut Dizy Corne Bautray is remarkable for many reasons. One of those is just how vivid the flavors are. An utterly seamless wine, the 2004 Corne Bautray impresses for its exceptional overall balance. Almonds, lemon oil, chalk, sage and light pastry notes develop as this utterly beguiling Champagne shows off its superb pedigree. The 2004 was bottled with no dosage, but that isn't even evident in the least. A wine of notable vibrancy and energy, the 2004 is a wine built on focus and persistence. ...95" AG 05/13 " Vivid yellow. Suave, expansive aromas of lemon curd, poached pear, buttered toast and chamomile, with notes of iodine and jasmine emerging with aeration. Juicy, penetrating and pure, offering vibrant orchard and citrus fruit flavors with a strong mineral overtone. Weightier on the finish, which shows superb delineation and persistence. This seductive Champagne was raised entirely in oak and it's wearing it very well...94" IWC 11/13 "Jacquesson’s roughly 5,000 bottles of 2004 Extra Brut Dizy Corne Bautray issue from (what were then) 44 year-old vines in the cool, breezy upper reaches of the eponymous site. This translates into a metaphorically cool, laid-back wine that for some tasters – and especially when first opened – might seem slightly aloof. But there is dazzling complexity here, as well as the impeccably balance – at near bone dryness – that characterizes all of the Jacquesson bottlings I most recently tasted. Scents of iris, apple pip, peach kernel, quinine, and toasted almond set the tone for piquancy that follows on a palate strongly alkaline in undertone and loaded with bittersweet, illusive inner-mouth floral perfume. Imagine chomping from behind on honeysuckle, stem and all, and you have some inkling of the effect. The sense of transparency here is striking, and there is even more to be glimpsed after the wine has been open for a day, with toasted pumpkin seed, lime rind, and an enhanced vividness of iris perfume emerging. A hint of salinity stimulates the salivary glands in the long, interactively complex, and downright thought-provoking finish. This will seduce you only if you meet it more than half way, and it is not about to shed its silken, mineral-sequined shroud. I suspect it will merit following for more than a decade, though I must confess ignorance with older exemplars of this bottling....94" WA 11/13
