Wine Description

Produced only in exceptional vintage years and intended as the ultimate expression of the Taittinger style, this wine is composed entirely of Chardonnay grapes grown in the top vineyards of the prestigious Cote des Blancs. Only the first press juice is used. A small proportion (5%) of the blend spends three to four months in new oak barrels, enhancing the intrinsic qualities of the final blend. Prior to disgorgement, the Blanc de Blancs is aged for 10 years on the lees in 13th-century chalk cellars that were once the property of Saint Nicaise abbey.

    Based on first pressing Chardonnay from the Cote des Blancs, the 2006 Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs opens with a precise, fresh and concentrated bouquet of ripe fruits on the nose. On the palate this is a less rich and opulent 2006, but its complexity, intensity and tension in combination with the linear freshness, purity and serious expression in the long and mineral finish, make this a top wine of the vintage.

    A very fresh expression of pure chardonnay finished with Taittinger’s signature toasty layer of autolysis, caramelised grilled nuts, creme brulee and a wealth of bright and unmarred citrus fruits. The palate has a super fine thread of acidity buried under a wealth of lemon, peach and nectarine fruits; it’s long, even, focused and powerful. It finishes long and fine.

    A vivacious Champagne, with fine integration of the racy acidity and chalky bead, rich mineral character and creamy palate. Drink now through 2030.-A.N.
