Product Overview

The 2007 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is a powerful, refined, expressive, and complex Champagne, with notes of citrus fruits, lime blossom and caramelized grapefruit. The long, rich ending reveals sweet licorice aromas. It's a perfect accompaniment to first courses such as seafood and shellfish. A small proportion (5%) of the blend spends three to four months in new oak barrels, enhancing the intrinsic qualities of the final blend. Prior to disgorgement, the Blanc de Blancs is aged for 10 years on the lees in their 13th-century chalk cellars.

97 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"Always one of the great Champagnes, this comes from a year that is generally regarded as good but not great. And yet, with this Champagne is magnificent. The wine has some good bottle age, hinting at toast while also keeping the tight, mineral edge of a great wine from the Comte des Blancs. Drink from 2020." -RV, 7/1/19

96 Points - Vinous
"Taittinger's 2007 Comtes de Champagne will be nearly impossible to resist upon release. Soaring aromatics, mid-weight structure and soft contours give the 2007 its alluring personality. Lemon oil, white flowers, mint, chamomile and green pear add brightness and freshness throughout, with a persistent, clean finish that makes it impossible to resist a second taste. Today, the 2007 comes across as a slightly more open version of the 2004, with freshness that makes that wine so appealing, and a touch of textural richness that recalls the 2002. Although the 2007 does not have the explosive energy or verticality of the profound 2006, it will drink better earlier. The 2007 has been positively brilliant on the three occasions I have tasted it so far." -AG, Jul/2018

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2007 Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is an excellent but tightly wound rendition of this cuvee, offering up pretty aromas of brioche, lemon oil, lily pollen and dried white flowers, with comparatively few of the overtly toasty signatures that will likely emerge with more protracted time on cork. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, pure and incisive, with a refined mousse, tangy acids, a tensile core and a harmonious, integrated profile. While it is giving pleasure today, to my palate, its plenitude is still five or six years away; it's certainly more backward than its 2006 predecessor. This was disgorged with nine grams dosage after just over nine years on the lees." -WK, 4/30/19

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Elegant and toasty, with a firm backbone of acidity structuring the brioche, lemon zest, poached apricot and spun honey flavors as they ride the lacy bead. Grated ginger and chalk notes detail the lively finish. Drink now through 2028. 20,000 cases made, 1,250 cases imported." -AN, 12/15/18
