First Class

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne 2007

This great 2007 vintage lives up to all expectations as soon as you open the bottle. Fine and delicate nose with white blossom, minerality, Anjou pear and golden raisins. The taste is vibrant, with a combination of lemon and saltiness. Followed by a sensation of complex, yet mellow freshness creating the perfect balance between ripeness and a full-rounded flavour. It is rounded off by a long-lasting, crisp finish with hints of salted butter.

The Fourchaume is located on the right bank, west facing the sunset. ‘Lamblin pefectly manages to couple the nervy, crisp vitality of a top class Chablis with soft citrus and light hints of nectarine. Fine, dry, stony palate and a lengthy finish.’

Named after the pink-purple bloom of heather that once covered the hill, Château Montrose is nested on the bank of the Gironde just south of St Estèphe village.
