The hallmark of Champagne Taittinger is the high proportion of Chardonnay used in winemaking which is key for crafting wines of great elegance and finesse. From the non–vintage Brut Réserve to the prestigious Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs, Taittinger’s first and foremost priority has always been the quality of the wines it produces.
The Champagne Taittinger Brut Millésimé comprises only wines from the first press with a blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. The Grands Crus make up a significant proportion at 70% while the other selected villages are all classified as Premiers Crus. A 5-year long ageing period in the cellars unlocks its full potential.
A vivacious, fresh nose offers aromas of hawthorn, grapefruit and pear. The palate is crisp and wonderfully precise. Marked by citrus fruit, it offers an excellent balance of structure and finesse.
The complex finish is elegant and long. Offering complexity and a delicate tautness, this wine is perfect for an aperitif amongst connoisseurs.
