Taittinger Blanc de Blancs 1998

External Review:

($140) Green-gold. Vibrant, youthful, precise aromas of green apple, Meyer lemon and dusty citrus zest. Racy and taut on the palate, with a strong mousse and impressive focus and concentration to the tangy apple and citrus flavors. Juicy, palate-stai... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1996 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, Blanc de Blancs 750ml

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. .

Had a few glasses of this at one of my favorite chef's restaurant recently. It has fine bubbles and tastes wonderful. Very elegant. This champagne is made only from the chardonnay grape. Generally, champagne is made from three grapes: two black grapes (pinot noir, pinot meunier) and chardonnay, the white grape. The red grapes give it its weight and maturing roundness.

Toast and graphite flavors highlight this elegant, graceful blanc de blancs. It has a subtle power driving the candied berry and dried citrus notes, with a touch of pastry and the ever-present mineral. Fine harmony and finish. Drink now through 2015.... Wine Spectator.

Pale color. Knockout aromas of lime blossom, orange peel, minerals and cilantro. Almost painfully intense on entry, then rich and superconcentrated. Vibrant flavors of orange pith, lime and mint offer great thrust without any heaviness. Extraordinari... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
