Champagne Taittinger Overview
All the grapes used in Comtes de Champagne are grown in the 100% rated Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs of Avize, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger and Chouilly. Only made from Chardonnay and from vintages of exceptional quality, 5% of the wines have aged for 4 months in new oak barrels, a third of which are renewed every year. The 2006 vintage was a markedly hot year. Fortunately, after a cold and snowy winter, there was no damage in the vineyard and the spring levelled things out with steady, mild weather patterns. A variable and unpredictable summer brought periods of extreme heat punctuated by storms in July, but cooler temperatures in August led to an unaffected harvest. The more we taste expressions of the 2006 vintage, the more we are coming to view it as one of the best; second only to 2002, it is surely one of the vintages of the decade.

Light and refreshing, this is at once intriguing on the nose, with mature notes of ripe fruit and raisin. Well balanced on the palate with incredible complexity, its dosage of 9 g/L is evident in its full bodied, yet sweet richness. This is an exceptionally pure expression of Chardonnay that is delicious now, but promises exciting development over the coming years. One of the best Comtes we've ever tasted!

Notably, Loic Dupont, head winemaker at Taittinger commented: "I think the recently released 2006 vintage is possibly the closest stylistic comparison to emerge since the 2002."
