Bright lemony lifted nose. Chalky and very fresh. Sweet at the edges and bright and long.

A far cry form the 2006 lots of green apple high acid not much of a middle palate . Lots of better grower Champagnes out there at $50 are better . Should have passed on this vintage and put it in the Millésimé .

One of my favourite Champagnes year in, year out. I’ve had plenty of vintages, and if offered at a fair price, I’m always in. This vintage is a let-down, and I’m happy to own only a few. Totally lacking energy and its classic grace and purity. Plush and disappointing.

Working our way through the “Classic and Appellation “ List of matching Wines to the predominantly Seafood set menu at one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to - Geranium Copenhagen. The 2007 was a difficult vintage in Champagne ie. no Dom that year. Norbert the Somm said an acidic and skinny vintage. Lean on the palate / no Brioche. Some salinity - low fizz. An excellent food wine - can see why it’s in the matching Wines list. I have always found Comtes to be elegant and restrained.

Taittinger visite in Reims. Light straw. Bright and cheery. Not overly complex. Not sure if I’m a buyer (instead waiting for 08 release which they said is still 1 to 1.5 years away)

First sips of the 07’ - this is great champagne. Now unfortunately compared to the 06’ it’s just not on the same level. Lemon peel and Meyer lemon nose, with a nice hint of marzipan and sea spray. I appreciate the body with underlying salinity and depth but it’s a bit flabby compared to the 06’. Really nice none the less!

17/20 (92/100) Аромат лежалых яблок, белых персиков, сдобы и ванили. Высокая кислотность. Удивительно насыщенное во вкусе. Весьма приятное вино. #dfwe2018
