Aromas of yeast fermentation. It is either the 2002 taste, or it just tasted spoiled to me.
A good  wine.

Comtes de Champagne Taittinger 2000
One with a very nice color. Reminiscent of other sparkling wines by the aromas of yeast. It smelled a bit of smoke.
It goes well with a strong fish.
A little expensive.
