Reviews 96 points Wine Advocate "Offering up inviting aromas of red berries, plums, sweet spices, orange rind and freshly baked bread, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and vinous, with an ample core of fruit, lively acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse. (WK)" 93 points Vinous "Crushed berry, mint, chalk and dried herbs emerge on the bouquet, and yet the wine remains very tight, even with aeration. (AG)"

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.
