Regarding the Champagne Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012
The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012, a mythical cuvée, is the quintessence of Maison TAITTINGER.
This champagne is a 100% Chardonnay, from the five villages classified as Grand Cru of the prestigious Côte des Blancs: Cramant, Avize, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Chouilly and Oger.
It is only after a very slow and patient raising period of nearly 10 years in the chalky cellars of Saint-Nicaise that this exceptional cuvée comes into the light. The 2012 vintage, a low yielding vintage, offers a very rich and well balanced cuvée. A great vintage !
The bubble is fine, delicate, creamy. The nose reveals pastry notes as well as aromas of apricot, pear and candied citrus. It is a wine of great mineral power. The palate is ample, structured, with a rare aromatic purity.
Perfect for an exceptional celebration, this champagne will be perfect with a starter based on seafood, fine shellfish or fish.
It is the flagship of the House of TAITTINGER, their Cuvée de Prestige is one of the best Blanc de Blancs on the market!
