Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2006

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Lovely and elegant toasted coconut and almond notes with light perfectly integrated yeastiness and hints of peach and dried apricot. Zesty and floral on entry - this is perfectly elegant and refined while delivering an excellent dose of pure acidity and fresh fruit flavors of peach, pear and green apple. Towards the mid palate a pure minerality permeates the palate adding a steely character that is quite austere and mellows into a toasted yeast that softens towards the creamy finish.

Champagne Taittinger is one of the few remaining family owned and operated Champagne houses. The firm is distinguished for its extensive vineyard holdings of 752 acres, including prestigious Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims regions. Unlike most large houses, Champagne Taittinger relies primarily on estate grapes for its portfolio of Champagnes. Also unique are the higher proportion of Chardonnay in its wines that gives Taittinger its signature style, and the time devoted to aging the wines before release—most often greatly exceeding the legal requirement, in a practice that also has become a Taittinger hallmark. Distinguished for its extensive vineyard holdings of 752 acres, including prestigious Grand Cru vineyards. Highest-quality production: exceeding minimum aging for all cuvées, high percentage of estate grapes, sustainable practices. Uses a higher proportion of Chardonnay grapes in its blends than other large houses—Taittinger’s unique personality. Critical acclaim: consistently outstanding (90+) scores, worldwide recognition among connoisseurs Read less

Shows lovely balance with a creamy mousse and rich and toasty flavors of roasted hazelnut creamed apple lemon parfait and spun honey. Drink now through 2028.

If forced to choose a recent Comtes de Champagne for drinking today I would gravitate towards the 2005. A beautiful wine the 2005 has some of the openness of the 2002 mixed with a little of the energy of the 2004 but without the sheer personality of either. Instead the 2005 impresses for its persistence harmony and sheer drinkability. Best of all unlike some recent prior vintages the 2005 is not going to require any cellaring to offer its best drinking. I would cellar the 2002 and 2004 and drink the 2005 for the next decade-plus. 93+ Antonio Galloni.

The 2005 Comtes de Champagne is a great wine in the making and this will be a year where it will not be infanticide to drink the wine on the relatively young side as the

Grosser Wein! Das Top-Cuvee von Taittinger! Ätherisches Bouquet, vielschichtig, Brioche, Vanille, Blütenduft. Am Gaumen cremige und finessenreiche Struktur, viel Frucht von Grapefruit und weissen Pfirsichen. Grosses Alterungspotenzial!

A savory aromatic accent of dried herb and candied orange peel notes mixes with yellow peach kumquat honey graphite and creamy mineral. Very refined and elegant with finely tuned acidity driving this to the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020. From France.-A.N. Wine Spectator.
