WineScores' Review

Poise, precision, elegance.
The close-knit Taittinger family has managed this Champagne House for nearly a century, always with the pursuit of excellence. Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger shares the company with his son Clovis and daughter Vitalie.
Maison Taittinger is located right in Reims.
The Comtes is the flagship, the iconic and finest example of Champagne from the Taittinger portfolio. Made entirely from Chardonnay from five Grands Crus villages (Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Oger, Mesnil-sur-Oger), it is aged 10 years in Taittinger's chalk quarry cellars beneath Saint-Nicaise in Reims before release. There is also a rose version made with Pinot Noir.
This blanc de blancs is my favourite, it's elegance in liquid form with acacia and warm apple pastries, creamy lemon and mineral tones. Fresh, a lovely bead and pristine character, it has poise and tautness the others in the portfolio don't quite succeed to.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
