96 Points – James Suckling
Elegant pale yellow color. Fine light bubbles rise steadily to form a delicate ring of foam. The nose initially presents fresh, refined tangerine-like fruit, then develops mature notes of ripe fruit, raisin pastries and candied fruit. On the palate, the attack is both smooth and lively. The mid-palate is supple, full-bodied and rich, with flavors of grapefruit. The finish is still very long and refined with a hint of spice, reminiscent of licorice sticks. The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2006 offers maturity and finesse, and its aromatic potential suggests a great capacity to age.
About Taittinger :
Champagne Taittinger was established in 1931 by Pierre Taittinger on the foundations of Forest-Forneaux, itself established in 1734 and the third-oldest wine producing house of Champagne. Taittinger is today proprietor of approximately 600 acres of vines among which are included parcels in the one hundred – percent rated villages of Cramant and Avize in the Cote des Blancs; and Bouzy, Mailly, Ambonnay and Verzenay in the Montagne de Reims. The Taittinger Estate is one of the three most extensive in the Champagne district, and the firm’s major holdings in Chardonnay vineyards are the physical expression of the Taittinger philosophy and style.
