Taittinger Comtes de Champagne
Description & Technical Information
-
Taittinger Comtes de Champagne is a prestige cuvée blanc de blancs made entirely from Chardonnay grapes sourced from the best vines in the prestigious Côte des Blancs region. It is only produced when the harvest is of exceptional quality worthy of a vintage year. Winemaking methods involve strictly using just the first press juice and ageing 5% of the wines for four months in new oak barrels - a third of which are renewed every year - to enhance the intrinsic qualities and complexities of the final blend. Presented in 18th century antique style bottles, this hand-crafted champagne is aged eighteen metres underground in the UNESCO status Saint-Nicaise cellars in Reims for a minimum of eight years before being released.

Weather: A difficult start to the year with damaging hailstorms in early May were rescued by a warm August which gave the grapes a promising outlook for the harvest. A damp September challenged producers although some champagnes are drinking really well today.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 8 years on the lees
Dosage: 9 g/l
Drink: Now to 2030

Tasting Note: A pale yellow colour with a fine stream of bubbles. A lovely texture of peaches, and gentle citrus elements. The mouth feel is soft and well rounded. A champagne that is now more open and accessible.
