Decanter World Wine Awards: Silver 2017
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.
The Champagne region is one of the country’s most important wine regions and has been producing champagne for over 1000 years. South of Reims, Épernay is the capital and main trading ground for the area. French wine laws state that only sparkling wines from this region can be labelled as Champagne and they must adhere to strict appellation standards.
