Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Limited stock.

The pale golden yellow colour is illuminated by almost fluorescent green highlights. The bead, particularly fine and abundant, rises steadily to form a light ring of bubbles.

The very fresh nose opens on contrasting intense yet subtle grilled, toasty notes. These are followed by aromas of candied citrus peel, lemon and vanilla tart, roasted almonds and finally a floral hint of dried flowers and lime blossom.

The initial impression on the palate is expressive and powerful, dominated by the vivacious citrus fruit, especially ripe lemon. Mid palate the flavour is more delicate, with flavours of caramelised grapefruit.

The lengthy rich finish reveals sweet liquorice notes.

A perfect marriage of delicacy and intensity with freshness and harmony, Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2000 reveals the full ageing potential typical of the great Chardonnays from the Cote des Blancs.

Produced in the cellars of the former Saint-Nicaise abbey (13th century) in Reims,Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs receives all the lavish care and attention it needs to reach its peak, and is only created if all of the following conditions are present, to make it such a rare luxury:

  1. The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs cuvee is made entirely from Chardonnays from only the best vines on in the prestigious Cote des Blancs including Avize, Mesnil-sur-oger and Crament.

  2. It is only produced when the harvest is of exceptional quality worthy of a vintage year.

  3. Only the wine from the first press - the Cuvee - is used: a sure guarantee of finesse.

  4. 5% of the wines used to make it have aged for 4 months in new oak barrels (a third of which are renewed every year), enhancing the intrinsic qualities of the final blend.

Only after slow and patient ageing for 10 years in the Saint-Nicaise chalk pits (Crayeres) does this cuvee of exceptional quality come out into the light.
