Simply one of my favorite Champagnes in existence. I love it for its gorgeous marriage of fresh green apple and the toastier lemon and brioche notes of a long-lees-aged Chardonnay. Saline and just a touch of butterscotch to finish. So delightful.

Bright, light lemon. Chalk, steeliness. Very dynamic and pretty with a saline edge… delicious and drinking brilliantly now. Thanks Will!

Nice straw color. Youthful. Notes of fresh bread, citrus and stone. Good weight and impact in the mouth. Really liked this.

Fresh, punchy and full of life. Lemon, limestone, chalk, lifted white flowers. Great fun

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.
