Very pale yellow colour. Fine, light bubbles, rise steadily to form a delicate ring of foam. The nose initially presents a fresh, refined tangerine-like fruitiness. It then develops more mature notes of ripe fruit, raisin pastries and candied fruit.
On the palate, the attack is both smooth and very lively. The mid-palate is supple, full- bodied and rich, with flavours of grapefruit. The finish is still very long and refined with a hint of spice, reminiscent of liquorice sticks. The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2006 offers maturity and finesse.This cham-pagne’s aromatic potential is just beginning to open up, suggesting a very good capacity to age.
