2008 Taittinger Comtes De Champagne Grand Crus Blanc De Blancs
A pale golden sparkling wine, whose steady bead of tiny bubbles throws up subtly restrained lemon toast and praline notes in the aroma. In the mouth, the wine is as yet tight, linear and intense, gradually opening out into a luxurious silkiness of mousse whose citrusy flavours are supported by a high tensile spine, providing youthful structure which itself underpins a zesty dry, mouthwateringly saline finish. Still tight and youthful, this is a bit of a shy adolescent at this stage, but it exudes class nonetheless and needs a decade or even longer for its full qualities to unfurl. Drink 2021 – 2035.
