Taittinger 1971 Comtes De Champagne Blanc De Blancs 75cl
A bottle of 1971 Taittinger Blanc de Blancs, a vintage Champagne produced solely from Chardonnay grapes.
This expression, Comtes de Champagne, is an homage to Lord Thibaut IV, who planted the first Chardonnay vines planted in the province in the 13th century.
'Simply a fabulous Champagne, with an elegance difficult to beat and a perfect combination of floweriness and fruitiness. It's truly amazing that one can make such a light, ethereally floating and feminine wine so rich and concentrated. 96/100' Richard Juhlin, 2003

As this is an older Champagne it is likely that it has lost its bubbles naturally over time. It is also natural for the liquid to have oxidised and become darker.
Note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing.
This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
