Domaine Carneros Le Reve 99 and 05

Here are my Domaine Carneros Le Reve 99 (left) and 05, tasted today.
2005 - snappy and crisp with good acidity and depth, length of flavors. Toast and bread, but very young. 99% Chardonnay, 1% Pinot Blanc.

1999 - creamy and rich, very soft but still very vibrant texture. Very fine bubble with extremely soft attack and well integrated acids. Autolysis is present and refined, shows some toast, bread and butter, and toasted nuts. Wonderful and still young.
