TAITTINGER COMTES DE CHAMPAGNE BLANC DE BLANCS 2007

The most absolute expression of the style of the House, the Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is always a vintage cuvee. Made from 100% Chardonnay with grapes from the finest crus of the prestigious Cote de Blancs (Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Oger, Mesnil-sur-Oger), this cuvee is made only with juice from the first pressing. A small portion of the blend (5%) is aged in new oak casks, which lends nuance to the harmony of its delicate toasted notes. With these great Chardonnays from its lands, Taittunger knows to be patient; the Comtes de Champagne Blancs waits in the chalk mines of Saint-Nicaise for 10 years before seeing the light of day and overjoying the palates of consumers.

Winemaker Notes:
Synonymous with an exceptional moment, the opening of this vintage 2007 keeps all its promises. The typical colour of the Chardonnay is present, its golden and shiny dress is crossed by a cord of fine and persistent bubbles. Its delicate nose is a soft mixture of white flower and minerality with generous aromas of Anjou pear and dry white grapes. To this fruity perception comes the addition of aniseed and smoked touches. In the mouth, the attack is lively, with an alliance of flavours of yellow lemon and salinity. Then we have a sensation of freshness, complex and suave, a perfect balance between maturity and roundness. The finale turns out to be a beautiful long finish, tart, in tension and adorned with sweet notes of salty butter. A true memory of time, the freshness of this Comtes de Champagne foreshadows all the potential for ageing that is expected of such a cuvee.
