Product Description

The 2006 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs pours an elegant pale yellow color while 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 2006 offers maturity and finesse, and its aromatic potential suggests a great capacity to age.

97+ Points - Vinous Media
"The 2006 Comtes de Champagne is striking, especially in the way it brings together elements of ripeness and freshness in a hypothetical blend of the 2002 and 2004. Smooth and creamy on the palate, the 2006 is all about texture. There is a real feeling of density and weight in the 2006, qualities I expect to see grow with time in the bottle. All the elements fall into place effortlessly. The 2006 has been nothing short of magnificent both times I have tasted it. Comtes de Champagne remains the single best value (in relative terms) in tête de cuvée Champagne. I suggest buying a case and following it over the next 20-30 years, which is exactly what I intend to do. There is little doubt the 2006 Comtes de Champagne is a magical Champagne in the making."

95 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"Taittinger's prestige cuvee epitomizes the Chardonnay predilection of this producer. This now-mature bottling is elegant and very stylish. Toast and a soft texture combine with great complexity to reveal a wine that is poised and ready to drink. But with the acidity in the background, it could still age, so drink now and until 2022."

94 Points - Wine Spectator
"A vivacious Champagne, with fine integration of the racy acidity and chalky bead, rich mineral character and creamy palate of glazed apricot, ground anise, biscuit and passion fruit flavors. Offers a firm, focused finish. Drink now through 2030."
