Leesy, toasty aromas of baked apple, nutmeg, flowers, spices and citrus oil. Big, rich, thick and mouthfilling; offers an extraordinarily chewy texture, with ripe acids giving the flavors great thrust. Exhilarating chalky soil tones on the completely ripe, tactile aftertaste. Knockout Champagne.

This outstanding wine is made in a delicate yet frothy 100% Chardonnay style. Along with the Nicolas Feuillatte Palmes d'Or, this may be the sexiest and most voluptuously-seductive Champagne in the marketplace.

In magnum it is young with a clean, dry taste. The scent is almost identical to a Les Clos from Dauvissat. Even the taste breathes of mineral and unmistakable class. In a regular bottle a riper and sweeter Comtes appears, with a long, fat, and toasted oaky aftertaste. My latest bottle was a bit tired.

A fresh and vibrant Champagne, with fresh dough aromas, bright lemon and butter flavors and a lively texture that seems to propel the flavors to a lingering finish. Delicious.

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.
