Lot #667. Taittinger Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne Brut 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Champagne.
Score: 96 WA.
"The 1990 Comtes de Champagne captures a stylistic middle ground between the 1988 and 1993. Slightly advancing tones of orange peel and roasted nuts are beautifully contrasted by a streak of minerality that gives the wine its freshness and verve. Bright floral and mineral notes reappear on the finish, adding focus. Rich in its texture yet effortless, the 1990 offers exceptional balance and tons of class. It should continue to drink well for another 15 years." In the Cellar, Sep 2010
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $300
