Taittinger Comtes Blanc de Blanc 2000

$350.00

 The 2000 Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne is a huge wine bursting with ripe varietal fruit, smoke, ash, crushed rocks and slate. This is an unusual Comtes that deftly balances richness and power while maintaining considerable minerality. The 2000 will be hard to resist in its youth, but should also age beautifully for a number of years. It is a stunning, flat-out great bottle. This is Lot L0346UJ05700. Disgorged October 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030.  (11/2011) 96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

 Pale gold. Deep, pungent aromas of dried pear, toasted nuts and grain and white flowers, with a subtle citrus note in the background; pretty exotic stuff. Broad and silky in texture, with slow-mounting minerality adding focus to its powerful, smoke-accented orchard fruit flavors. Shows an energetic, spicy quality on the finish, which echoes the mineral, smoke and floral notes. This Champagne is still very young but I suspect that it will be more a mid-term drinker than a long ager.  (11/2011) 94 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar
