User Reviews for Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 97 Jg

Winemaker's Notes:

"Taittinger’s 2002 Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne is off the charts. I have tasted the 2002 now many times, and it has never been less than thrilling. A vivid kaleidoscope of pure Chardonnay aromas and flavors opens up in the glass. The 2002 is at once incredibly rich yet also totally weightless and impeccable in its balance. All the classic Comtes notes are there, but with a level of detail and nuance I don’t think I have ever seen before. The 2002 is breathtakingly beautiful today, but also appears to have the stuffing to age for decades...98" WA 11/12 "The deep and stunning nose soars from the glass in a pure and toasty mélange of delicious apples, pears, brioche, just a hint of wood char, a gloriously complex base of chalky soil tones, orange zest, incipient notes of pastry cream, a dollop of lemon blossoms and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and supremely elegant, with a great core of fruit, utterly refined mousse, crisp acids, superb balance and delineation and great length and grip on the seamless and absolutely dancing finish. Given the ripeness of the 2002 vintage, the stunning refinement and elegance of this Comtes de Champagne is absolutely magical! A great, great wine...97+" JG 8/12
