Taittinger Comtes 2011 is an exceptional champagne whose ageing qualities are as legendary as the namesakes , the “Comtes de Champagne” (Counts of Champagne) themselves. This legend of the Comtes de Champagne is a sparkling story full of intrigue and poetry from the 16th century. With Theobald IV, the singing count at the center, reality and fantasy blur. In the end, what remains is an emotional story that still fascinates everyone today.
Now let’s talk about the champagne: The extraordinary bottle shape catches the eye immediately and the bottle filling is also convincing: Selected Chardonnay grapes from five Grand Cru communes form the basis. A small part of the base wine matures in new oak barrels and gives the champagne fine toasted notes. The climate also leaves aromatic traces: 2011 was characterized by climatic contrasts: an unusually warm spring gave way to a cool, wet summer. These weather chapters give the champagne freshness, tension, a salty minerality and profound finesse. After 8 to 10 years of aging in Taittinger’s mystical chalk cellars, the result is a Champagne worthy of legends and special moments. It is these emotions that make Taittinger Comtes 2011 the ideal companion for unforgettable moments. Let’s toast – to the counts, the legend and life!
