"The 2013 Comtes de Champagne captures all the pedigree of this great vintage." -Antonio Galloni

For many years, Comtes de Champagne has been one of our favorite Champagnes. We have enjoyed it in its youth and have been blown away by bottles with decades of age on them.

The 2013 Comtes de Champagne is a vintage that we've been waiting to get our hands on. This is simply a great vintage for one of the best and most reliable champagnes around.  

The 2013 vintage in Champagne is one of our favorites in the past couple of decades. It was a cool, throw-back vintage with many growers harvesting in October, which is very late by recent standards. The champagnes from this year possess so much poise and finesse.

In 2013, Comtes de Champagne has beautiful incisive elegance with loads of silky texture and refinement. The wine is a study in nuance and detail.

This is a thrilling vintage of Comtes de Champagne. Given the wine's verve and depth, we expect it to age gloriously. I'm very happy to offer this again at sharp pricing.

2013 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne

750 ml


Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2013 Comtes de Champagne captures all the pedigree of this great vintage in its energy, depth and vibrancy. Lemon confit, dried flowers, chamomile, spice and crushed rocks all race across the palate. Passionfruit, ginger, marzipan and mint appear later, filling out the layers beautifully. Harvest took place in October in what has become the exception rather than the norm in Champagne."
