The definitive Blanc de Blancs Champagne, made solely in great years from Grand Cru Chardonnay from 100% rated vineyards in Avize, Cramant, Chouilly Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger in the Côte des Blancs. 5% of the blend is aged in new French oak barrels bringing a subtle weight and toastiness to the wine. Supremely elegant this classic wine with its super fine bubbles has the distinctive Taittinger style of delicacy and lightness together with a beguiling minerality, great complexity and a never ending finish. Sublime.

Very pale yellow colour. Fine, light bubbles, rise steadily to form a delicate ring of foam. The nose initially presents a fresh, refined tangerine-like fruitiness. It then develops more mature notes of ripe fruit, raisin pastries and candied fruit. On the palate, the attack is both smooth and very lively. The mid-palate is supple, full-bodied and rich, with flavours of grapefruit. The finish is still very long and refined with a hint of spice, reminiscent of liquorice sticks. The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2006 offers maturity and finesse. This champagne’s aromatic potential is just beginning to open up, suggesting a very good capacity to age.
