    Introducing the Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012, a masterpiece meticulously crafted by Winemaker Alexandre Ponnavoy. This exceptional Champagne, made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, has garnered acclaim from wine connoisseurs around the world.

    In the glass, this Blanc de Blancs dazzles with its radiant golden hue, hinting at the opulence within. On the nose, a fragrant bouquet of roasted hazelnut, vanilla, and a subtle smokiness sets the stage for a symphony of aromas. Layers of poached pear and quince, pastry cream, pain d’epices, and candied ginger dance gracefully.

    On the palate, this Champagne reveals its true magnificence. It is sculpted by a vibrant acidity that harmoniously intertwines with a plush, silky mousse, all supported by a chalky underpinning. The mouthfeel is luxurious and enveloping, offering a rich tapestry of flavors.

    Wine Spectator’s rating of 96 points aptly captures the essence of this “blond bombshell,” while Wine Advocate’s 95 points acknowledge its luscious and textural qualities. James Suckling, with an exceptional rating of 99 points, applauds its complexity, layering notes of lemon curd, chalk, hazelnuts, pastries, baked apples, and almond croissants.

    The Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012 is a testament to the artistry and dedication of Champagne Taittinger. With each sip, it unfolds its intricacies, leaving an indelible mark of elegance and finesse. This Blanc de Blancs is not merely a Champagne; it is a masterpiece, a celebration of the craft of winemaking.

    A gorgeous blond bombshell of a Champagne, fragrant with roasted hazelnut, vanilla and smoke notes that waft through layers of poached pear and quince, pastry cream, pain d'épices and candied ginger. This is sculpted by a vibrant acidity that's seamlessly knit to the plush, silky mousse and chalky underpinning.

    The 2012 Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne is showing beautifully out of the gates, offering up demonstrative aromas of sweet golden orchard fruit, buttery croissants, peach and hazelnuts. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and enveloping, it's a rich, textural, vinous Comtes somewhat reminiscent of the brilliant 2002. If it gains in tension and cut (as the 2002 did and as I suspect the 2012 will) with more time on cork, it will make this initial rating seem conservative.

    This is a fantastic and refined Blanc de Blancs. So layered and complex, with lemon curd, chalk, hazelnuts, pastries, baked apples and almond croissants. Structured and tightly wound, with almost imperceptible bubbles. Delicious salty notes at the end. Beautiful.
