Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 1998

Champagne, FranceIf there is one champagne we can never get enough of it is the elegant Taittinger Comtes de Champagne. Look for baked apple, citrus, creamy, floral, nutty, brioche, peach, mineral aromas. Very fine mousse on the palate with a creamy texture and persistence. Delicate with creamy, toasty, lees, spicy, baked green apple, mineral and citrus flavours. Fresh, crisp, dryer brut style with great finesse and acidity. A bit tight now, will improve with 3-5 years of age.Tasted: 21 December 2008Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: ON 249.00 Vintages QC 240.00 NS 225.00 Bishop's Cellar Producer: Champagne TaittingerDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
