Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2006

Champagne, FranceOne of the top wines of the year, again, and still, and same (current) vintage we've been tasting since 2013. What a treat to track the evolution of the '06 Comtes, one of our favourite in memory. Pristine and stunning, this graceful wine sets the bar for premium blanc de blancs, with, elegant and finessed fruit all in complete integration with each other. Potent, shimmering vibrancy with chalky, lemon, green apple, pear, brioche, cashew, delete white florals that linger on the very lengthy, streamline palate seasoned only with a dash of sea salt. The intensity has lessened, but the grace has remained, all in that elegant Taittinger style. As said, my favourite Comtes in a while, and one I'll be cellaring.Tasted: 09 December 2017Tasted by: Prices: AB 245.00 private wine shops QC 459.25 1500 SAQ NS 200.00 BC 256.00 BCLS Producer: Champagne TaittingerDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
