Potential

Open, creamy, toasty, and downright delicious; this wine might not be complex or intellectually stimulating, but it does have plenty of fluffy, creamy fruit. Apples, pears, and a few peaches all come out for a day in the sun inside this "ready to go now" wine.

Potential

Very full-bodied and quite spicy, this is going to be a spunky one when released. Cinnamon-dusted pears and apples mix with yeasty, lightly toasted dough to create a plethora of flavors in this young, but potentially inspired Champagne. After the 2002, this is my favorite Art de Vigne and definitely one to watch out for.

Potential

Compared alongside other vintages of this cuvée, this possesses more acidity and is a bit thinner in the mouth. It does display spiced pear flavor and a dose of toasty dough, but these attributes quickly fade, leaving a simple apple and citrus mix. More time on the lees will certainly help this along, but I don't feel this will ever be a standout Art de Vigne.

Potential

Still just a baby, but oh, so delicious already. Bright, creamy, earthy peaches and juicy pears lead the way on this bright, tart, and fruity youngster. Time should bring out some spice and cream notes that will lift this up further. I can't wait for 2013-2014 to see what the finished released wine will taste like.
