Fresh and sweet cool lemon with limestone, a hint of mint, and steeliness. Really good.

Absolutely gorgeous champagne that is right down the middle in terms of style. Tart lemon, toast, chalk, and a hint of nuttiness. Sharp and acidic but tons of layers here. Continuously evolving on the palate revealing limestone, powder sugar dusted lemon bars, and roasted almonds. This is built for the long haul, but certainly enjoyable now. Thanks @Mark Flesher .

Out of magnum elegance and power . Tons of seashell , minerals , lemon curd , honey suckle , pulverized stone. A baby in magnum but shows great promise stunning juice .

A lovely go-to champagne. Great balance, ripeness, a hint of sweetness. White floral stuff, salinity, minerality. Classic comtes.

Taittinger's 2006 Comtes de Champagne Rosé is composed of 15% Pinot Noir with the remainder Chardonnay and it is a sensational showing. This fabulous Rosé opens up beautifully to pretty aromatics of strawberries and red berries which are laced with citrus zest, lovely minerality and subtle toast nuances. On the palate this shows a stunning combination of depth and energy and precision which defines this gorgeous Rosé as it leaves a beautiful impression on the palate. While the 2006 is utterly captivating now, it should also continue to evolve gracefully over the next decade.

Fresh, vibrant and balanced. Drinking so well in its youth.

Gorgeous BdB that really struck me with its power and intensity. Balanced by a spine of acid and freshness. No oak yet supple, rich, great creaminess and autolytic notes. Layered

Have enjoyed this several times over the past 12+ months and it keeps getting better and better with time.
Perhaps
@Antonio Galloni
is right with his praise and I should have stocked up better.

Oh hey. This Comptes talks. It says “I am here” the way landing a proper tours jete feels good I probably messed that ballet spelling. But this wine was lovely and lively and precise.
