First taste: Taittinger Comtes de Champagne new releases

Comtes de Champagne new releases

This year, Champagne Taittinger has decided to release two bottlings of its iconic Comtes de Champagne: the classic Blanc de Blancs from the 2012 vintage, and a rosé Champagne from 2009.

As is well known, the Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively with Chardonnay, using grapes from five specific terroirs of the Côte des Blancs sector: Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, and Oger.

The Côte des Blancs is a strip of land stretching some 20km south of Épernay that is celebrated for its chalky bedrock, which leaves a pronounced imprint on its Champagnes.
