Taittinger, Comtes de Champagne, Blanc de Blancs, Brut, Champagne, France, 2005
£40 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price - £299.00
I have selected one of Champagne’s finest top cuvées. Since its first release in 1952, only 30 vintages have been produced. For me, 2005 is amongst some of the best! Comtes de Champagne is a blend of Chardonnay from five different Grand Crus from the Côte Des Blancs.
It is not released before it has aged for 10 years in the Taittinger cellars and 2005 is the newest release. This Champagne develops some notes of toast and hazelnuts due to a slight barrel ageing as well as some lovely ripe stone fruit tones, aromas of citrus fruits and vanilla.
The palate shows a great balance with a lively minerality and a long finish. A fantastic Champagne to have as an aperitif or to enjoy with our scallops dish.
Please reserve your glass with reception before 7pm on Friday 27th & Saturday 28th February 2015.
