Champagne Taittinger Comtes de Champagne (750ml)
Taittinger is one of Champagne’s great houses. It was founded in 1734 by Jacques Fourneaux whose vision grew into the large company it is today. Taittinger Champagne is characterized by its high proportion of Chardonnay in the blend. The house produces a few styles; both non vintage as well as exceptional vintage dated Champagnes.
This is a staff favourite. Pronounced aromas of brioche, white flowers, nuts and vanilla. The palate is full and reminiscent of candied citrus and vanilla custard; fresh and creamy at the same time. A complex and harmonious Champagne that makes any occasion special!
The colour is pale yellow with silvery glints. The bubbles are exceptionally fine and abundant and form a lively and lasting elegant necklace of mousse. The nose is intensely fine and ethereal, reminiscent of mineral aromas and delicate fragrance of white blossom, with overtones of fresh almonds, vanilla and a subtle hint of pine forests. The first impression on the palate is of extreme freshness, with dominant citrus fruits, lemon zest and grapefruit and a light, beautifully balanced finish. – Robert Parker
