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. Presented in 18th century antique style bottles, this hand-crafted Champagne is aged 18 metres underground in the UNESCO status Saint Nicaise cellars in Reims, for a minimum of 8 years before being released.

In general, 2005 was warm and dry. After a winter which was hard but mostly dry, spring was characterised as being very mild with a few warm periods. The flowering period ran from 15th to 19th June. After a period of concentrated rainfall towards the end of June and beginning of July, the rest of July was dominated by hot weather, and August by cool weather.

A pale golden yellow colour with a steady flow of tiny bubbles. The vintage has helped produced a very fresh champagne combined with hints of some toasty notes. On the nose citrus notes are present and the initial impression on the palate is expressive with vivacious citrus fruits. The lengthy rich finish reveals sweet liquorice notes.

Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Dosage: 9 g/L
Disgorged: March 2015

“Rich, ripe white fruit nose coming with a seductive charred, toasty nose. Plenty of pristinely clean fruit. Caressing, smooth silky palate with baking spices and yellow apples. Fresh, zesty palate of fine intensity. Long lingering and appealing.”
