Description

The Tete de Cuvee from the house of Taittinger. Comte de Champagne Blanc de Blanc has for generations been the standard bearer for 100% Chardonnay Champagne and 2008 was an outstanding vintage with raves from all quarters. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 97 points and awarded it #12 on their Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2018. They said “The balance between ripeness and acidity that is the hallmark of this fine vintage is expressed well in this impressive wine. Tangy, with a strong streak of minerality, it is crisp and rich at the same time. For its fruitiness, it is ready to drink; for more maturity, it will need to age until 2018.”James Suckling scored this 99 points saying “A slightly more luxurious nature to the 2008 than the great 2007. Full-bodied with a lovely framework of acidity and dry fruit, such as apples, pears and peaches. Opulent. Dense and muscular. Yet, it’s balanced and harmonious. Line of acidity at the end. One for the cellar. Release in 2020. Drink or hold.”…
