Color: The color is pale yellow with silvery glints. The bubbles are exceptionally fine and abundant and form a lively and lasting elegant necklace of mousse. Nose: The nose is intensely fine and ethereal, reminiscent of mineral aromas and the delicate fragrance of white blossom, with overtones of fresh almonds, vanilla and a subtle hint of pine forests. Palate: The first impression on the palate is of extreme freshness, with dominant flavors of citrus fruits, lemon zest and grapefruit and a lightly acidulous, beautifully balanced finish. In all, Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 1998 is an exceptional wine boasting remarkable finesse; its aromatic qualities and intense flavors make it a superior quality champagne.

Possibly the most famous Blanc de Blancs, this continues to be a yardstick. The style almost floats, a layer of bubbles that rests gently in the mouth, releasing great flavors of very crisp fruits and a texture that hovers between green apples and minerality. This is a classic.

Plenty of graphite and citrus on the nose, followed by butter, coffee and toast flavors. Racy, with a refined texture and excellent vigor. Beautifully put together, this seems youthful, with great potential. Drink now through 2024.
