Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut 2006 launches in the UK
15th September 2015
The Taittinger family are delighted to release the much anticipated Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut 2006.
This prestige cuvée, made from 100% Chardonnay from only Grand Cru rated vineyards, is only produced when the harvest is of exceptional quality worthy of a vintage year.
Clovis Taittinger comments, “Our Comtes de Champagne is made with five Grand Crus, the very best of the best. The 2006 vintage is well balanced but reveals incredible complexity. It is delicious now, but I am personally very excited to see how it develops over time as it promises to be very long lived”
Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger adds, “2006 represents the first vintage made in my Presidency, when I took over Taittinger with my son, Clovis, and daughter, Vitalie. Comtes is the soul of Taittinger, it’s an extraordinary wine whose reputation was built by my ancestors. It’s divine; it’s magic; it’s a glorious wine.”
With aromas of fresh, refined tangerine-like fruitiness. It then develops more mature notes of ripe fruit, raisin pastries and candied fruit. On the palate, it is both smooth and very lively, with flavours of grapefruit. The finish is long with a hint of spice, reminiscent of liquorice sticks. This Champagne’s aromatic potential is just beginning to open up, suggesting a very good capacity to age.
