2004 taittinger, comtes de champagne blanc de blancs
Why We're Buying
Taittinger has been around for nearly three centuries and with good reason. Wines like Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blanc represent the epitome of the craft. The elegant form and delicate flavors make it a must-have for wine lovers and investors.
A rich and enticing aroma of roasted hazelnut heralds this elegant blanc de blancs, with flavors of pastry, poached apple, crystallized honey and candied ginger riding the finely detailed mousse. This is a touch smoky, presenting a resonant minerality on the finish.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
It’s fascinating to taste the 2004 Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne after the 2002, something I have been able to do on a few occasions. The 2004 is all about minerality, precision and tension. It doesn’t have the sheer richness or power of the 2002, but it makes up for that with its crystalline purity and sheer energy. Bright hints of lemon oil, white flowers and crushed rocks are layered into the pointed, vibrant finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2034.
