Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 1990

Conrad Green Delectable Pro

Darkish gold. On the nose butterscotch, some lemon acidity and oily perfumed notes with some spice (cinnamon?), orange peel, sandalwood. Loads of secondary notes with great depth and lovely fresh acidity still. This is a cracking bottle of a really good 1990. With the complexity of a great aged champagne and a real spine of rounded acidity and superb balance

Vintage had early frost damage but still managed an above average yield by virtue of a second flowering in a long, hot summer. "For 45 years I have lived in Champagne and never have I seen such a year," said Claude Taittinger ....
