Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2004

Champagne, FranceThe 2004 Comtes de Champagne follows the outstanding 2002 and it too is a good one. Creamy, mineral chalky, precise, elegant, forceful and still taut and high strung. The style is bright the fruit comfortably nuanced under floral, mineral notes with a twist of oyster liqueur. This is a brilliant bottle of bubble with the structure and breed to age gracefully for a decade and more. Über cool, über elegant and simply delicious.Tasted: 29 November 2013Tasted by: Prices: AB 245.00 private wine shops QC 153.00 NS 160.00 BC 167.00 specialty listing Producer: Champagne TaittingerDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
