The hallmark of Champagne Taittinger is the high proportion of Chardonnay used in winemaking which is key for crafting wines of great elegance and finesse. From the non–vintage Brut Réserve to the prestigious Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs, Taittinger’s first and foremost priority has always been the quality of the wines it produces.
This great 2007 vintage lives up to all expectations as soon as you open the bottle. It is a moment to treasure. This 100% Grand Crus has a fine and delicate nose which combines white blossom and a certain minerality with general overtones of Anjou light pear and golden raisins. The taste is vibrant, with a combination of lemon and saltiness. This is immediately followed by a sensation of complex, yet mellow freshness creating the perfect balance between ripeness and a full-rounded flavour. It is rounded off by a long-lasting, crisp finish with hints of salted butter. Its freshness encapsulates a certain moment in time and promises interesting cellaring potential, as well as making for a truly special partner in celebrations.

“There is a pretty elegance, exacting purity and beguiling freshness to 2007 that I find thrillingly compelling, and it’s captured in pinpoint detail in this enchanting Comtes… Still pale and bright straw in hue with a hint of green tint at 12 years of age, this is my style of Comtes… It upholds an air of eloquent confidence, effortless harmony and graceful beauty. Turn down the lights and the music and pour it for the one you love most.”
