Tasting Notes:  

97 points Decanter

This was the underdog triumph of the tasting. It may have been rated as an average vintage, but the 1993 was a real beauty, equal to the 1995 but in a different style. The colour is surprisingly youthful, with a bright glow. This is so Chablis-like, with its citrus and lime aromas and a flinty minerality. It’s one of the freshest champagnes at the tasting, more feminine in style than most, with a fine acidity and a precise, linear structure. A complex wine with great energy and a prickling mousse.

It had been six years since I last had the pleasure to taste a bottle of the 1993 Comtes de Champagne and time seems to have simply not touched this wine since that day back in the summer of 2010 and it seems very likely that it will continue to cruise along at its apogee for at least a decade longer than I had thought back then. The wine has been fully mature for many years now, but continues to be fresh and lively on the palate, with its internal structure sound and seamless. The bouquet is pure, complex and à point, wafting from the glass in a classy blend of pear, crème patissière, toasted almond, chalky soil tones and plenty of smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and still beautifully knit together, with bright acids, lovely focus and grip, elegant mousse and a long, wide open and vibrant finish. Lovely wine.

Pale color. Knockout aromas of lime blossom, orange peel, minerals and cilantro. Almost painfully intense on entry, then rich and superconcentrated. Vibrant flavors of orange pith, lime and mint offer great thrust without any heaviness. Extraordinarily long for Champagne. A remarkable wine that may yet improve in bottle. (ST) (11/1999)
