Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is Taittinger's flagship prestigious Cuvee made from 100% Chardonnay grapes sourced from the best Grand Cru vineyards. It is produced only in exceptional years, when the harvest is of the highest quality. The wine is made using first press juice only. 5% of the wines are aged for four months in new oak barrels to further develop the qualities and complexities of the final blend.

The champagne comes presented in an 18th century style antique bottle. This handcrafted champagne is aged in the Saint-Nicaise cellars in Reims for a minimum of eight years before it's ready for release.

In the glass, the fragrance touches you with maturity and voluptuousness. It provides generous and delicious notes of gingerbread, liquorice and meringue. The aromas evolve into delicate white fruits: vine peach, cherimoya and mandarin peel, subtly blending with touches of almond pastry.

A wine of great mineral power, dense and rich with the Chardonnay wines flexing their iodine character. The generous palate is built upon a chalky structure, giving it charm and precision. This smooth, silky wine takes you on a journey through aromas of candied fruit and sweet spices.

The freshness of Comtes de Champagne 2011 offers great ageing potential. The flagship example of the Maison Taittinger style, Comtes de Champagne is a rarity of nature. It's produced with a great deal of care and attention until it reaches peak condition. The production criteria is so tight and strict that only limited quantities are ever produced.

During the 10 years the 2011 vintage has spent maturing in cellars, time has infused its magic, creating a vintage with an extraordinary energy and ageing potential. All that remains now is for time to write the rest of the story. Opening the 2011 vintage is an occasion in itself, it lives up to all expectations. A unique experience, a visual and sensory delight. Beautiful golden glints shimmer through its straw yellow colour with gold reflections; the mousse is fine, delicate, creamy and captivating.
