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:
