Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker, Jancis Robinson, and Suckling

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.

Some smokiness on the nose. Lemony, youthful and still quite tight with a detailed undertow – lots going on there! Lacy texture and impressive length. This one will run and run and seems at this stage to have more pronounced acidity than some of its precursors.

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.

Champagne Taittinger

Taittinger is the commitment of a name, of a family that has always been very clear that having its name on the labels is a great responsibility and a constant requirement.  Today, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, who has embodied this commitment for 40 years, shares his passion at the helm of the maison with his sons Clovis and Vitalie, in a perfect balance between the knowledge of the past and the excitement of the future. However, the Taittinger dynasty goes back a long way....
