The sensory experience is unique, both visually and taste-wise! With a beautiful golden luster on straw-yellow colors with some slight golden reflections; the bubble is fine, delicate, creamy, and captivating. Its nose transports us to a universe of maturity and voluptuousness. It exhales gourmet notes of gingerbread, liquorice, meringue. This Counts of Champagne gives us aromas of delicate white-fleshed fruits: vine peach, cherimoya and mandarin peel subtly combined with fine touches of pastry almond. A wine of great dense and rich mineral power with Chardonnays illustrating on an iodized character. This generous mouth is built on a chalky framework giving it charm and precision. This suave wine transports us to aromas of fruit confits and sweet spices such as anise and coriander.

After the tightly coiled, hyper-concentrated 2008, Taittinger's 2011 Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne represents a more immediate, charming rendition of this cuvée. Bursting from the glass with aromas of orchard and stone fruit mingled with notions of pastry cream, blanched almonds and mandarin, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and fleshy, with a soft and enveloping profile, lively acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse. Readers might think of the 2011 as a somewhat less reductive and less intense stylistic sibling of the 2006, and as it takes on more toasty complexity with bottle age, it will make for immensely seductive drinking.

A minerally version, with smoke and saline notes deftly meshed with flavors of glazed apple, lemon-infused pastry cream and marzipan. This is fine and softly creamy in texture, with lemony acidity providing good definition through to the lightly toasty finish. Elegant. Drink now through 2030. 2,800 cases imported.
