Comtes de Champagne Fondberg Reims Taittinger The Champagne Bar by Richard Juhlin

The Sthlm Comtes de Champagne Vertical ’06-’88

We have for a long time tried to get hold of the Comtes de Champage with age. Which has been a dilemma when the company historically had to improve the finances of the company as they sold a lot of Taittingers grapes to others. Whereupon also sold out almost everything they had in the cellars. Since 2002, however, Taittinger started to build a new reference oenothèque of Comtes de Champagne. Here we have a situation similar with Cristal. Buy everything you come across, and early. If you do not plan to pay quite a lot for your mature Comtes de Champagne, of course.

1982 taittinger ‘comtes de champagne’

1982 TAITTINGER ‘COMTES de CHAMPAGNE’  | 100CH  | aprox  €345 | RJpoints 93(93) 

TASTINGNOTEFrom start an overwhelming, rich, romantic, and euphoric Champagne. Bubbling mousse with that unique pearl-necklace formation. The generous buttery nose includes tons of exotic ripe fruit, red apples, coconut, and a nutty complexity. The sweetness is tangible in the juicy taste. Creamy, fat, full bodied, buttery, and wonderfully long. The wine melts in the mouth like ice cream and runs down the throat like nectar.’

champagne spring trip - day 2 - Pol Roger Comtes de Champagne Reims Taittiinger

bubbles @ taormina

RJ stayed at Hotel Timeo in Taormina and had the following Champagne as an apéritif on the terrace:

1998 TAITTIINGER ‘COMTES de CHAMPAGNES’ | Reims | Champagne | France | Taittiinger | 100CH | RJpoints 93495)

 

TASTING NOTE ‘Not even the importer knew that the new vintage was on its way when they found a magnum 98 among their bottles. It is clearly a bit wrong to start tasting a new vintage in a magnum since the size of the bottle makes the wine even less ready. So far this is a fresh, lemon-crispy package of mineral without the slightest “Comtes” maturity. Store!!! All right, not as sharp any longer, some toastiness started to appear during the spring of 2007, and butterscotch plumpness in the spring of 2008.’
