Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Brut 2006

Taittinger’s prestige cuvée, the Comtes de Champagne is one of the most elegant and stylishly produced Champagne in 2006.

Made entirely from Chardonnay sourced from 6 Grand Cru sites in the Côte des Blancs, this cuvée is only produced when the harvest is of exceptional quality and the 2006 is another absolute superstar. A classic!

It has received a gold medal and four trophy awards at the International Wine Challenge, including the title of IWC Champion Sparkling Wine 2017.

"The 2006 brings back all the wonder of classic Comtes: the innocence of a joyful childhood, a free-as-air dash through endless blue daylight and a breathless plunge into an icy mountain rock pool. A wine of coiled energy, focus, precision and minerality that bores to the very core of the finest chalk fields of the Côte des Blancs."

"The 2006 Comtes de Champagne is striking, especially in the way it brings together elements of ripeness and freshness in a hypothetical blend of the 2002 and 2004. Smooth and creamy on the palate, the 2006 is all about texture. There is a real feeling of density and weight in the 2006, qualities I expect to see grow with time in the bottle. All the elements fall into place effortlessly. The 2006 has been nothing short of magnificent both times I have tasted it. Comtes de Champagne remains the single best value (in relative terms) in tête de cuvée Champagne. I suggest buying a case and following it over the next 20-30..."

"this is one of the finest Comtes de Champagnes ever" "Very sumptuous nose seems eerily close to fine white Côte d’Or burgundy. Still tight and very glamorous. Really classy and explosive. Hugely promising. There is delicacy and charm here.
