Taittinger 2012 Comtes De Champagne Blanc De Blancs 75cl / 12.5%
A bottle of 2012 Taittinger Comtes Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne, made from 100% Chardonnay in Reims, France.
Taittinger's Prestige Cuvée, Comtes de Champagne, is an homage to Lord Thibaut IV, who planted the first Chardonnay vines in the province in the 13th century.
'Some smokiness on the nose. Lemony, youthful and still quite tight with a detailed undertow – lots going on there! Lacy texture and impressive length. This one will run and run and seems at this stage to have more pronounced acidity than some of its precursors.
Drink 2022–2040. 18/20' Jancis Robinson MW, tasted 2022
