Comtes Champagne Blanc de Blancs
Pale yellow in colour. Fine light bubbles, rise steadily to form a delicate ring of foam.
The nose initially presents a fresh, refined tangerine-like fruitiness.
It then develops more mature notes of ripe fruit, raisin pastries and candied fruit.
On the palate, the attack is both smooth and very lively.
The mid-palate is supple, full bodied and rich, with flavours of grapefruit.
The finish is still very long and refined with a hint of spice, reminiscent of liquorice sticks.
The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2006 offers maturity and finesse.
This champagne's aromatic potential is just beginning to open up, suggesting a very good capacity to age.
