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)"

What sets Comtes de Champagne apart further is its delicate oak influence. About 5% of the blend enjoys a brief sojourn in oak barrels, a mere four months, introducing nuanced complexities. However, the real magic unfolds in Taittinger’s iconic 'Crayeres' in Reims. These ancient chalk caves, UNESCO World Heritage sites, cradle the Comtes de Champagne for up to 10 years on lees. Such prolonged aging in the 13th-century chalk cellars beneath the Saint-Nicaise Abbey lends the wine its signature depth and finesse.
The Taittinger lineage, under the guidance of Vitalie Taittinger, remains unwavering in their commitment to quality. The result is a wine that resonates with the region's history, particularly the legacy of Thibaud IV, King of Navarre. Every bottle of Comtes de Champagne is not just a sip of wine, but a taste of Champagne's storied past and Taittinger's ceaseless dedication to perfection.
