NEW RELEASE - 2007 Comtes de Champagne, Taittinger

Taittinger's iconic Comtes de Champagne from the 2007 vintage has now been released.

Made from 100% Chardonnay from across the top five Grand Cru vineyards, Comtes de Champagne has established itself as one of the very best Champagnes that money can buy. It is matured for at least 8 years in Taittinger's remarkable, UNESCO recognised cellars, before it is then released to the market.

Only 35 vintages of this cuvée have been released since its inception in 1952 and this 2007 is an excellent installment in the Comtes de Champagne story. We tasted the wine just this morning and we were very impressed by its linear, mineral attack which sets up a generous, sumptuous mid-palate before tapering off again to a mouthwatering, long finish. Whilst it is very much a different style to the fantastic 2006, we are convinced that it is every bit as good.

James Suckling scores this Champagne 98 points, even higher than the 2006 vintage, making this the joint highest scoring Comtes released so far.

If you love Champagne, you will certainly love this 2007 Comtes.

"This is a step up from the linear and fresh 2006. It shows subtle depth and power with a dense block of vivid fruit that's highlighted with lemon zest, green apples and hints of white peaches. Just the right amount of praline and nuts on the nose. Fine and tight bead give the Champagne a luxurious mouthfeel. One for now or the cellar. Drink or hold."

"This is quite beautiful. There’s lovely concentration of citrus fruit with some subtle hazelnut and toast, as well as good structure and fine acidity. Compact and dense, but at the same time it’s pretty and delicate. There’s a touch of grapefruit and a refined spiciness, as well as riper notes of apricot and peach. But the main theme here is beautifully focused, pure citrus fruit. Just beautiful."
