I do like Comtes. It’s invariably a beautiful wine, and it ages well. I’ve written up a vertical of these wines before, and recently tried the current vintage, 2006. This 2002 is from a ripe, seductive year, and it’s shaping up very well. This is drinking very well now, but will probably still develop a bit more. No need to wait, really, though.

Champagne Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2002 France
Very fresh and linear but with a lovely toasty richness. Notes of almonds, pear, ripe apple and lemons, as well as some candied citrus peel. Finely toasty with a bit of spicy, mineral reduction adding interest. Complex and bold, this has a fresh mineral component but also some richer toasty notes, showing finesse and intensity as well as the generosity of the 2002 vintage. 95/100
