Taittinger's Comtes de Champagne beautifully showcases the depth and breadth of the firm's awesome Grand Cru vineyard holdings in the Côte des Blancs. We were wowed, and a bit shocked, at a recent tasting of this 2012 edition as it seemed to show more cut, exuberance and length than it did when we tried it late last year. This development is a sure sign that it has all the "right stuff" to age very well on the cork and become one of the all-time great Comtes de Champagnes.

VINOUS WINE MEDIA 96 POINTS - "The 2012 Comtes de Champagne is gorgeous. Warm and resonant in the glass, the 2012 Comtes shows all the allure that makes this vintage so appealing. The combination of bright citrus, mineral and floral notes typical of Comtes, enhanced by the soft contours of the vintage, makes for an inviting, open-knit Champagne that is quite showy right out of the gate. Light tropical accents on the finish add an exotic flair. Usually I recommend cellaring just-released Comtes, but that won’t be necessary here. Drink: 2022-2042. (May 2022)"

JAMES SUCKLING 99 POINTS - "This is a fantastic and refined Blanc de Blancs. So layered and complex, with lemon curd, chalk, hazelnuts, pastries, baked apples and almond croissants. Structured and tightly wound, with almost imperceptible bubbles. Delicious salty notes at the end. Beautiful. Drink or hold. (9/6/22)"

WINE ADVOCATE 95+ POINTS - "The 2012 Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne is showing beautifully out of the gates, offering up demonstrative aromas of sweet golden orchard fruit, buttery croissants, peach and hazelnuts. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and enveloping, it's a rich, textural, vinous Comtes somewhat reminiscent of the brilliant 2002. If it gains in tension and cut (as the 2002 did and as I suspect the 2012 will) with more time on cork, it will make this initial rating seem conservative."
