CHARLES HEIDSIECK Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Blanc des Millénaires 1995
95 points, $95
Classy and graceful. Glides across the palate with its fine mousse, creamy texture and tightly knit flavors of coffee, candied berry, honey and hazelnut. Harmonious, lingering with a long, butterscotch aftertaste. Drink now through 2018. 5,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

TAITTINGER Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Comtes de Champagne 1996
93 points, $140
There's richness to offset the vibrant structure of this 1996. Shows toast, candied berry, lemon zest and mineral flavors. Balanced, ending with a chalky sensation around the gums. Still very youthful, with a long life ahead. Drink now through 2018. —Bruce Sanderson

DEUTZ Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2002
92 points, $94
Rich, with a dense texture, evoking whole-grain toast, honey and mineral aromas and flavors. Has good grip, with a crisp structure and a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2012. 450 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

HEIDSIECK MONOPOLE Brut Champagne Diamant Blanc NV 2005
91 points, $100
There's a hint of mushroom and burnished wood in this vigorous Champagne. Like a barrel-fermented white Burgundy, with a sharpness and complexity that begs for food and contemplation. Long, appley aftertaste. Drink now. 2,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
