Delivery Details

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blanc 2006 is produced in the cellars of the former Saint-Nicaise abbey (13th century) in Reims, Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs receives all the lavish care and attention it needs to reach its peak. Every bottle is made entirely from Chardonnays from only the best vines in the prestigious Côte des Blancs. It is only produced when the harvest is of exceptional quality worthy of a vintage year.

Only the wine from the first press – the Cuvée – is used: a sure guarantee of finesse. 5% of the wines used to make it have been aged for 4 months in new oak barrels (a third of which are renewed every year), enhancing the intrinsic qualities and complexities of the final blend. Only after slow and patient ageing for 8 to 10 years in the Saint-Nicaise chalk pits (Crayères) does this cuvée of exceptional quality come out into the light.

The year 2006 was predominantly warm. The Chardonnays display rich and complex aromas of white and citrus fruit, together with white flowers, as well as a lovely minerality which gives them their elegance and sophistication. The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2006 is a champagne which is both mature and delicate, with great aromatic promise, suggesting an interesting cellaring quality.
Very pale yellow colour. Fine, light bubbles, rise steadily to form a delicate ring of foam. The nose initially presents a fresh, refined tangerine-like fruitiness. It then develops more mature notes of ripe fruit, raisin pastries and candied fruit. On the palate, the attack is both smooth and very lively. The mid-palate is supple, full bodied and rich, with flavours of grapefruit. The finish is still very long and refined with a hint of spice, reminiscent of liquorice sticks. The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 26 offers maturity and finesse. This cham-pagne’s aromatic potential is just beginning to open up, suggesting a very good capacity to age.

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).

The ’must-read’ legend of the ‘Comtes de Champagne’ (Counts of Champagne) from the 16th century is a marvellous narrative of an assumed reality, combined with the storyteller’s imagination and poetry. Its relevance today is not so much down to its historical accuracy; it is more an emotional tale, with new adaptations which continue to flourish to this day. The flamboyant legend of Thibaud IV le Chansonnier is very much connected to the unique Comtes de Champagne blend by Taittinger.
