Champagne Taittinger 2011 Comtes de Champagne Blancs de Blanc
The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively with Chardonnay from the 5 villages on the Côte des Blancs with Grands Crus classification: Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger. This unique terroir is a strip of land measuring barely 20km. To create the Comtes de Champagne, only the cuvee is used, for an absolute guarantee of sophistication. Of the wines that make up its composition, 5% have been aged for 4 months in new oak barrels, one third of which are replaced each year.These enhance the inherent qualities of the final blend of toasted notes.
The 2011 is already showing beautifully with candied and bitter orange notes, toast, brioche, baking spices and baked apple.
