The 2002 Brut Dizy Corne Bautray is all wild flowers, honey, mint and dried fruit. Six months ago, the 2002 was big and broad-shouldered, but since then it has found a more feminine and graceful side as well. The weight and richness of this 50 year-old parcel comes through beautifully in vivid aromas and flavors that are totally seductive. The Corne Bautray is a wonderfully complete wine that changes constantly in the glass, a quality that will fascinate readers lucky enough to track the wine down for many, many years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

I have to say, I was totally blown away by the wines I tasted with proprietor Jean-Herve Chiquet at Jacquesson this year. I can’t think of another estate in Champagne that has so successfully transformed itself in just a handful of years. Most Champagne fans are familiar with the house’s 700-series NV wines, which remain absolutely delicious, fairly priced and relatively easy to find. Over the last ten years so, Jacquesson has also stepped up their program of single-vineyard wines. Quantities are tiny and prices are high, but these are now some of the most compelling wines in the entire region. If you haven’t tasted the Jacquesson wines lately, you owe it to yourself to do so. Date Tasted: October 2021. 95 points. Antonio Galloni. Robert Parker.
