I tried searching to see if this has a tn thread but I gave up. This new search function is horrible.

Anyways,

Stunning purity and taste profile. This is a wow wine. Toasted French toast notes with grilled almond and praline hints on the nose with refined pain brioche on the palate. This shows incredible pedigree and an even more impressive range of flavours that are only now starting to evolve. This is that special bottle you open up on those occasions that call for it. Looong finish. 96+

I’ve had this wine a couple of times and agree with mimik’s notes, though I do prefer ‘95, ‘96, ‘02. 

 

IMO Taittinger Comtes bats way above its price class. While it isn’t my very favorite, I think it deserves mention alongside the true greats — and at a fraction of the price. (Often findable under $100 if you get lucky.)
