Reviews 98 points Wine Advocate "Offering up a deep and complex bouquet of citrus oil, crisp orchard fruit, warm brioche, crushed chalk, blanched almonds and smoke, it's full-bodied and incisive, with excellent concentration, racy acids and a long, searingly chalky finish. (WK)" 19 points Jancis Robinson "Pale copper colour. Tiny bead. Lots of toasty autolysis on the nose and then masses of very crystalline acidity on the palate with a tiny bit of smoky reduction. Really energetic. Should be a great start to our JR.com Christmas dinner and, I hope, a good lead-in to La Grande Dame 1990. Dry finish and super-zesty. Lemon zest at that. Complete and gorgeous. Very long and clean. Beautiful balance. (JR)" 97 points John Gilman "The bouquet jumps from the glass in a vibrant blend of apple, pear, lemon zest, warm bread, chalky minerality, white lilies and just a whisper of buttery oak buried down deep. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a fine structure and grip, refined mousse, beautiful backend mineral drive and a long, complex and still quite youthful finish. (JG)"

About Taittinger

Taittinger is a renowned champagne house with a long and storied history dating back to 1734, making it one of the oldest and most prestigious in the region. With a focus on high-quality grapes and meticulous care in the winemaking process, Taittinger wines are known for their exceptional flavor profile and beautiful packaging. Whether for special occasions or simply to enjoy, Taittinger wines are a truly one-of-a-kind choice that never fails to impress.

While Taittinger is recognized for its affordable cuvees that offer tremendous value, the real star of the show is the Comtes de Champagne. This finest bottling from Taittinger is only produced in exceptional vintages and comes in two variations - a 100% Chardonnay Comtes de Champagne and the even rarer Comtes de Champagne Rose. The former is admired for its flavors of brioche and toasted almonds, while the latter is highly sought after for its delicate bubbles and elegant bouquet of wild strawberries and rose petals.

Year after year, they are praised for their consistency in quality and style. Tyson Stelzer, author of "The Champagne Guide," has lauded Taittinger for its “depth of reach into the Côte des Blancs grand crus has made Comtes de Champagne one of Champagne’s most consistent blanc de blancs, and every vintage since 1996 has been nothing short of transcendental." This wine is a true testament to the expertise and passion of the Taittinger team, who have worked tirelessly to craft a champagne of unparalleled excellence.
