The wine he has drawn from this (2008) is as great as any Clicquot vintage I have ever tasted. A year before its release, it's wound up tight, with coiled tension and tightly clenched acidity, yet at once light-footed in its airy delicacy. Beach-fresh lemon of high-noon brightness is the theme, touched with suggestions of blood orange rind and beginnings of nougat and brioche. A glimpse of oak lends just a subtle, well-integrated toasty note, but the real highlight is its breathtakingly fine, expansive chalk mineral landscape. The secret with this vintage is to keep your hands off it for as many decades as you possibly can. It has the euphoric freshness to outlive even the most disciplined willpower. TYSON STELZER
