2008 TAITTINGER COMTES DE CHAMPAGNE, Blanc de Blancs

Bin:  1120

Alcohol percentage:  12%

Producer:

From the Taittinger website:
“The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is the finest example of the Taittinger House style and is always a vintage cuvée. It is made with 100% white grapes from the 5 villages with a Grands Crus classification for the Chardonnay grape (Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Oger, Mesnil-sur-Oger).
This cuvée is created using juice from the first press only. A small percentage (5 %) of the blend is aged in fresh oak barrels to create the very delicate balance of toasted notes in the final wine. Taittinger knows it must be patient with these great Chardonnays, which are the crowning glory of its terroir; the Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs remains for up to 10 years in the chalk quarries beneath Saint-Nicaise, before emerging to ignite and delight the palates of wine-lovers.”

Old Bridge rating:

Not only Taittinger’s best wine, but this is one of the very top ‘Prestige Cuvées’ in all Champagne. Always a model of elegance – it’s that perfect combination of lightness and richness, delicacy and power.
The 2008 has been highly acclaimed by all critics. We have just 12 bottles.
