TN: 2004 Charlier & Fils Champagne Special Club Brut

2004 Charlier & Fils Champagne Special Club Brut - France, Champagne (4/9/2016)

Opened by a friend who brought this bottle back from France. This wine is not imported into the U.S.. I wanted to visit this winery during my visit to the region in 2013 but ran out of time. This Marne Valley producer is one of the founding members of the Club Tressors. 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Meunier and 10% Pinot Noir. Aged 10 years in cellar before release (the maximum allowed by Special Club rules). Straw color. Surprisingly young and fresh for being aged so long. Smokey flavors with notes of creamy french toast and brioche. Long finish. 94 points.
