The 2004 Brut Rose Comtes de Champagne is a majestic wine that gradually opens up in the glass to reveal subtle layers of expressive, fragrant fruit. The wine picks up body on the mid-palate where the substance of the fruit emerges with greater weight. The mousse and the wine’s overall balance are impeccable. Although the 2004 Brut Rose Comtes de Champagne is delicious now, readers will probably want to give this at least a few years in the cellar. The wine should be magnificent in a few years- time. The 2004 Brut Rose Comtes de Champagne is 30% Chardonnay and 70% Pinot Noir (including 12% still Pinot), all from Grand Cru villages. Disgorged: end of April, 2008, (not indicated on label). Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
I have a bottle of 1976 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne. I would like to know it value/best years to drink/etc.
An elegant, balanced rose produced predominantly from Pinot Noir grapes from grand cru villages of the Montagne de Reims, this is a sublime Champagne which marries refined red berry fruit with nuances of earth and yeast.
