Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2011
Without question one of the world's greatest Champagnes, Taittinger's Comtes de Champagne is among our favorites. Fresh and pure, it is the finest example of the Taittinger style and is always vintage-dated. 100% Chardonnay from the Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs, it rests in Taittinger’s chalk caves for up to 10 years before release. It is the quintessential blanc de blancs and a must-have for any Champagne lover.
JS97: A firm, fresh Comtes with a tight and composed palate. It’s full-bodied with a racy mid-palate. Long and persistent. Very structured with phenolics and acidity. Minerally. Floral, too. Refreshing and energetic. September 2021 release. Drink or hold.
