Taittinger, Comtes De Champagne, France 2006

The ultimate award winning Champagne from France.

The handcrafted Comtes de Champagne is the pinnacle of Taittinger's Champagne collection, offering finesse, elegance and layers of complexity. 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay grapes are picked from the finest vineyards, a special Champagne produced only in great vintage years.

Tasting Notes:
The 2006 Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs shows a beautiful golden-citrus colour and opens with a fascinating intense, floral, slightly reductive nose that develops enormously in the glass, offering lemon and lemon confit aromas along with flinty notes of crushed chalk and the iodine flavors of the Atlantic Ocean. This is an utterly complex and promising bouquet! The palate is fresh but also rich, lush and intense, with the purity of the finest wines of the Côte de Blancs.

Serving suggestion:
Pair with grilled and roasted white meats, fish or shellfish.
