With varietals consisting of 50% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier and 35% Chardonnay, the Taittinger vineyard is an unsurpassed example of that House's own style of wine, in which Chardonnay plays such a significant role. The vineyard's own production is supplemented by contractual acquisition of grapes from independent suppliers operating the finest vineyards in Champagne. In proportion to its size, Taittinger is, amongst the great Champagne houses, one of the growers with the largest supply from the Côte des Blancs, the preferred place of origin of the Chardonnay grands crus. .

Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blanc 1998 Magnum - Taittinger : Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blanc 1998 - Jahrgangschampagner von Taittinger - 1,5 Liter MagnumflascheEs gibt Jahre, da erreicht keiner den Standard. Nur aus außerordentlich guten Jahrgängen geht einer hervor, einer voll Tatenkraft und reich an Finesse, ein Graf, ein Kind aus exzellentem Hause, kraftvoll und komplex, ein außergewöhnlicher Geist für Heldentaten! Ein wahrer Prachtkerl. Im Glas erscheint er hellgolden und hauchzarte Perlenschnüre steigen auf. Mit seinen lebendigen Zitrusfruchtaromen zeigt er sich am Gaumen sehr edel und wunderbar frisch, zum lang anhaltenden Finale hin taucht er traumhaft harmonisch auf und führt den Gast in ein raffiniertes Aromenschloss von Lindenblüten, Limetten, feiner Ananas und einer Idee von Bienenwachs. Ein wahrer Verehrer, dieser Comte. Lassen Sie sich ohne schlechtes Gewissen verführen. Mit großer Behutsamkeit werden die Trauben von Hand gelesen und zu den nahegelegenen Kelterhäusern gebracht. Nur die erste Pressung, die sogenannte "Cuvée", wird für den Comtes de Champagne verwendet. Mindestens fünf Jahren lang ließ man dem Comtes de Champagne Zeit, um seine volle Erhabenheit und seinen Charakter zu entwickeln.Der Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blanc 1998 von Taittinger ist ein spezieller Champagner für den besonderen Moment. Elegant, fein und anspruchsvoll als Aperitif. Passend auch zu Meeresfrüchten oder zu gegrilltem Fisch und Hummer.Weingut: TaittingerLand: FrankreichRegion: ChampagneRebsorte: ChardonnayInhalt: 1,5 l Alkoholgehalt: 12,0 Vol.%Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 8-12°CAuszeichnungen für den Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blanc 1998: 92 Punkte - Weinwelt, Dez. 2008 (Jg.1998) Champagner - Sekt - Prickelndes > Frankreich > Champagne

A delicious, welcoming, generous wine that also manages to keep the pure, mineral character of Chardonnay. It has a very direct, linear, steely taste. Great acidity plays a part, as do ripe, fruity flavors and fine balance. This wine should develop well, but itandrsquo;s delicious now.

Light yellow. Stony peach and pear aromas are complicated by smoked meat and Asian spices. Round and filled in, with admirably deep pit fruit flavors, a pliant texture and a fresh mineral kick on the finish. Leaves a strong pear impression on the palate and an echo of minerals.

The 1998 Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne is simply beautiful. Sweet notes of honey are intermingled with candied citrus peel, flowers, smoke and minerals as this gorgeous wine opens up in the glass. Comtes de Champagne is always an understated, elegant wine, but its pedigree is impossible to miss. Readers seeking instant gratification will find much to admire even today, but this is clearly a wine that has the potential to develop positively in bottle. If past vintages are an accurate indication, the wine should acquire the liqueur-like sweetness in bottle that is its hallmark over time. Old vintages of Comtes de Champagne are unlike any other wine. The Comtes de Champagne is 100% Chardonnay from the grand cru villages Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Beandegrave;rgers-les-Vertus, Vertus and Mesnil-sur-Oger. A small amount of the wine is aged in new French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2028. This is Lot: L7081UB10000, disgorged February 5, 2007.

Impressive and seamless from the get-go, featuring lemon, apricot, smoke and spice aromas and flavors that build to the long conclusion. Itandrsquo;s creamy, yet firm and fresh, with all its elements integrated for an alluring profile overall. Thereandrsquo;s wonderful finesse and length. Drink now through 2028.

Tasting Notes:

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 flavours of citrus fruits, lemon zest and grapefruit and a lightly acidulous, beautifully balanced finish.
The aftertaste is lively, long and complex.

Blassgelbe Farbe, feine, intensive Perlage, Noten von weissen Blüten, Bienenwachs, Limetten und frischer Ananas. Am Gaumen intensiv, lebendig, finessenreich und elegant, es dominieren Zitrus- und Lindenblütenaromen.
