Taittinger celebrates its finest Comtes to date

Taittinger is set to unveil the latest release of its most universally lauded and prestigious champagne.


The 2006 Champagne Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is the finest expression of the champagne house’s style and is only made in years when the vintage is of exceptional quality.

The 2006 release is made purely from chardonnay grapes sourced from Grand Cru-rated vineyards in Azive, Le-Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Cramant and Chouilly in Côtes des Blancs.

It is also the first vintage of Comtes made by the 280-year-old house under Taittinger family management, following the buyback of the Taittinger champagne brand by Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger in 2006.

“Comtes is the soul of Taittinger,” Mr Taittinger said. “Its an extraordinary wine whose reputation was built by my ancestors. It’s divine. It’s magic. It’s a glorious wine.”

Managing Director, and the eldest child of Pierre-Emmanuel, Clovis Taittinger said the 2006 Comtes de Champagne is made with five Grand Crus, making it the very best of the best.

“The 2006 vintage is well balanced, but reveals incredible complexity,” he said. “It is delicious now, but I am personally very excited to see how it develops over time as it promises to be very long lived.”

The 2006 Champagne Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs will be available late this month from fine wine retailers nationally, with an RRP of $349.99.
