We did last call a while back, but I’m happy to say we acquired a few more cases of this monumental Champagne, if we see some at a good price we jump on it. I’m a huge fan of this bottle, and the 2006 will rival the 1996, 1995, 1990, 1988, 1982, 1979 and 1976’s vintages that were produced here. At its current price its way less than 1/3 the price of these vintages, and will likely be a $200+ bottle of Champagne in the next 3 to 5 years. Not that you typically buy them because of this, but Tete de Cuvee Champagnes have been good investments over the last few years compared to red Burgundy, and Bordeaux. This is a great time to buy or reload for if you are like me you have already drank several bottles of this beauty. The perpetual Champagne best buy for a few years running now.

Antonio Galloni 97+ 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."
