Suckling über: Champagne Comtes de Champagne Flaschengärung

-- Suckling: The perfect blanc de blancs. Full-bodied with a lovely framework of acidity and dry fruit, such as apples, pears and peaches. Opulent. Dense and muscular. Yet, it’s balanced and harmonious. Line of acidity at the end. Totally in tune. Superb. Deep and complete. Has everything. One for the cellar. It is the greatest Comte ever. It has everything. A perfect upgrade from two years ago. Drink or hold. 100/100


Galloni über: Champagne Comtes de Champagne Flaschengärung

-- Galloni: Taittinger’s 2008 Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne is simply breathtaking. I have tasted it many times over the years in various trial disgorgements and it has never been anything less than compelling. The final, finished wine captures all of that potential. Bright, focused and wonderfully deep, Comtes is a fabulous example of a vintage that expresses so much energy but with real fruit intensity, the signatures that distinguish it from other vintages (1996 comes to mind) that were similarly taut, but more austere in the early going. Although the 2008 impresses right out of the gate, it only really starts to open up with several hours of air. The 2008 Comtes represents the purest essence of the Côtes des Blancs in a great, historic vintage. Readers who can find the 2008 should not hesitate, as it is a truly brilliant epic Champagne that no one who loves the very best in Champagne will want to be without. 98+/100


Parker über: Champagne Comtes de Champagne Flaschengärung

-- Parker: This bottle of Taittinger's eagerly anticipated 2008 Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne had been disgorged in July 2018, and the wine is showing brilliantly, unfurling in the glass with a vivid bouquet of citrus oil, green apple, warm brioche, crushed chalk and blanched almonds. On the palate, it's full-bodied and searingly intense, with striking concentration and incisive but perfectly integrated acids, displaying a fine mousse, and remaining quintessentially elegant despite its undeniable power and persistence. The finest Comtes de Champagne since the brilliant 2002, this is a terrific vintage for this dependably age-worthy cuvée, and though it's already impressive, the wine is built for the long haul: conserved in a cold cellar, the 2008 will still be in fine form three decades from now. 98/100


Falstaff über: Champagne Comtes de Champagne Flaschengärung

-- Falstaff: Mittleres Goldgelb, Silberreflexe, feines, anhaltendes Mousseux. Mit feinen Hefenuancen und Biskuit unterlegte reife gelbe Apfelfrucht, Nuancen von Birnen, aber auch weiße Blüten und Zesten im Bukett. Sehr saftig, extraktsüß und cremig in der Textur, getragen von einem straffen Säurerückgrat, das für entsprechende Länge sorgt, feiner Blütenhonig im Nachhall, dunkle Mineralität im Rückgeschmack, großes Reife- und weiteres Steigerungspotenzial. 98/100
