2006 Taittinger Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne Magnum (Pre-Arrival)

2006 Taittinger Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne Magnum (Pre-Arrival)
ETA August
We have some rare magnum bottles of our best selling Tete de Cuvee of all time. 2006 is a fantastic bottle that is hard to keep your hands off. We are huge fans of this Champagne having gone through some six-packs, and a few magnums ourselves, 2006 will rival the 1996, 1995, 1990, 1988, 1982, 1979, and 1976 vintages in time. This is incredible in this format, and if you are familiar with this Champagne or been wanting to try a bottle, we highly recommend trying it out of magnum. We recently had another bottle of 2006 out of 750ml, and it is aging so beautifully, every time we try a bottle its the best we have ever had and these mags are going to be even more stunning with age, but don't feel bad about popping one now!
 
Antonio Galloni 97.5 points! "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 tête de cuvée 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."

John Gilman 96 points! The 2006 vintage of Taittinger’s iconic Comtes de Champagne bottling is a beautifully refined example of the vintage, offering up a pure and vibrant bouquet of apple, pear, brioche, complex, chalky soil tones, hazelnut, a touch of orange zest, white flowers and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and supremely elegant in profile, with outstanding mid-palate intensity, utterly refined mousse, bright acids and laser-like focus on the very long, nascently complex finish. Whereas many examples from the 2006 vintage are drinking very well at age ten, it is still very early days for this outstanding Comtes de Champagne and this wine will not peak for at least another decade, though it is already very, very easy to drink! I would be inclined to let it hibernate in the cellar for at least another five years, just to allow its secondary layers of complexity to start to emerge. (Drink between 2021-2060)
