Chartogne-Taillet Champagne Blend Champagne Brut 2004

Member Review by dbhonig:

from [URL=http://2daysperbottle.blogspot.com]2 Days per Bottle[/URL].Night OneThe color is pale straw, with a very slightly copper-colored tint.The nose is apples. No, make that APPLES!! Not fresh tart green apples, but more like one of those half-baked without any sugar or spices. Once it cooks, add just a teaspoon of warm caramel, and that is what this wine smells like.The palate is interesting. Imagine lining up every apple you ever ate, from tartest to sweetest, then back to tart again, and quickly taking a bit out of each one, and you get what happens from attack to mid-palate. It's dry, don't get me wrong, but the impression of apple is there the whole time. Night TwoLike Night One, the nose is huge with apples, apples, apples, and a little dollop of caramel. And like Night One, the palate runs through a bite of every apple you ever taste, though now the tart ones are more pronounced. Still, the only possible impression of this wine is APPLE. The mid-palate adds just a bit of baguette, but mostly, it's still apples.
