The 2006 Comtes de Champagne is striking, especially in the way it brings together elements of ripeness and freshness in a hypothetical blend of the 2002 and 2004. Smooth and creamy on the palate, the 2006 is all about texture. There is a real feeling of density and weight in the 2006, qualities I expect to see grow with time in the bottle. All the elements fall into place effortlessly. The 2006 has been nothing short of magnificent both times I have tasted it. Comtes de Champagne remains the single best value (in relative terms) in tOte de cuvee Champagne. I suggest buying a case and following it over the next 20-30 years, which is exactly what I intend to do. There is little doubt the 2006 Comtes de Champagne is a magical Champagne in the making.

A "plus-sized" supermodel of a Champagne. Round, voluptuous, and very sexy. Also great purity of expression.

Magnum. Spectacular in every sense and way more defined than the regular bottling. The autolysis character shines and its tertiary fruit flavors is lively and rewarding.. impressive!

Generous dosage once again thwarting my attempts at nutritional ketosis. Worth it, I suppose.

So much going on in this glass. Wow. This is a stunner. Big and powerful, but still very structured.

Tasting at Taittinger. All Chardonnay (Blanc de Blancs). Fairly earthy/grassy with a bread-like finish. Impressive wine
