Reviews For This Wine


 
Richard Juhlin | 89

Arman's design of a surrealistically golden string instrument against a black background is my favorite of the Collection bottles, even if the contents are nothing to rave about. Admittedly delicate and refined, but without the expected concentration-maybe it's presented itself now? I wouldn't be surprised, considering how often Taittinger and the vintage have positively surprised me. Yes! The wine is completely different now with an exciting, smoky, and tar-saturated nose and flavor. Extremely interesting and still vigorous.

About This Producer


Taittinger, located in Reims, is the third oldest Champagne house and one of the few remaining independent, family-owned houses. It produces both fine non-vintage and vintage Champagnes. The prestige cuvee is the vintage Champagne Comtes de Champagne, named after the original Comtes de Champagne, who resided in Reims in the 13th century building subsequently purchased by Taittinger. The blanc de blancs version is produced from 6 Grand Cru sites in the Cote de Blancs. The Comtes de Champagne Rose is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, made by the addition of red wine rather than the saignee. Taittinger's style is elegant and aromatic with complex, creamy richness.
