Why Buy: 2013 is a great Champagne vintage, and Taittinger's 98-point Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut Grand Cru is a mind-blowing expression, a reminder (if anyone needed it) of what makes this legacy house of Champagne so extraordinary. This 100% Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs cuvée is created using only first-press juice from Grand Cru-classified grapes sourced from Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Oger, and Mesnil-sur-Oger. All it takes is a single, sublime sip to see why so many collectors have been on the hunt to hoover it up.

The Bottling: Comtes de Champagne is the house's prestige cuvée, and is produced only in the best vintages.

What They're Saying: "Beautiful ... impressively perfumed ... textured [and full of] concentration," the Wine Enthusiast's Roger Voss wrote in a 98-point swoon. "

Our Tasting Notes: A masterpiece of the Champagne-making art. The 2013 is only going to become even more dimensional as it ages, but this is ready to go right now, and glitters with drama, crispness, and refinement. What keeps you coming back to it are its delicate, almost soft bubbles and yeasty, complex depths.

Fun Fact: Taittinger is approaching the 300th anniversary of its founding, when a textile merchant named Jacques Fourneaux approached Benedictine monks – who tended the greatest vineyards in Champagne – to teach him how to produce the distinctly effervescent elixir.

Our Guarantee: We always buy and source directly from the estate, so you can be confident that your Champagnes will arrive in your hands with pristine provenance. Don't hesitate to secure yours today!
