ABOUT THE WINE
The top cuveé of the legendary Champagne house Taittinger, Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blanc’s story goes back to Count Thibaud IV, King of Navarre, when he brought back two unique treasures from his crusades in the Orient, the Damask rose and an example of a new grape variety, now known to be the ancestor of Chardonnay. This is why, In honour of Thibaud IV, his seal proudly adorns every bottle of Taittinger. The Comtes de Champagne owes its exceptional complexity and sophistication to premium quality Chardonnay grapes only from the 5 Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs region, rich in Champagne’s treasured Chalk soils, including the villages of Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger. Grapes only suited for the finest cuveé of Champagne.

TASTING NOTES
Made by only using the very gentle first pressing of the grapes, which is then followed by a 10-year beauty sleep, deep under in the historic chalk quarries. This extensive ageing crowns this Champagne with layers of toasty richness alongside its elegant, dried camomile bouquet. The fresh, but vivid fruit character of 2007 makes it a more elegant wine compared to 2006’s intensity. Meaning it’s irresistible to drink now but has a lot of potential to build opulence with further time in the bottle.

FOOD PAIRING
A seriously textured wine that marries beautifully with rich seafood like lobster with butter sauce or seared scallops as well as foie gras and cream of mushroom soup.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
To add a further layer of complexity and structure, 5% of the wine is aged in new oak barrels before ageing on the lees for 10 years, a rare practice in Champagne only reserved for the top cuveés.
