ColourShimmering golden yellow.
AromaIntense and mineral, the nose combines floral and citrus notes (lemon and grapefruit).
PalateOn the palate, fruit, vinosity and richness predominate.
Growing ConditionsAfter a mild, rainy winter, with no particularly cold periods, an overcast spring began with a few very localised frosts. While there was some flower abortion and uneven grape size, especially in the Chardonnays in mid-June, the growing season, with relatively little sunshine, was not overly troubled by the usual vineyard diseases
Vinification/MaturationThe harvests officially started on 12th September but many waited a few days to start picking, which paid dividends in terms of ripeness. The weather was pleasantly cool and dry during the picking period, resulting in a fine, very healthy harvest. The Chardonnays are refined and vigorous, with good minerality. The Pinot Noirs are fruity and vinous, with finishes that are still lively. The 2008 wines stand out for their remarkable freshness and vivacity. The acidity is very firm and well-integrated, suggesting a good potential to age.
Alcohol/Vol12.5%
Bottles per Case2
Peak DrinkingThe 2008 vintage has produced wines characterised by freshness and vivacity, with a perfectly integrated acidity that suggests they will age very well.
Recommended Food PairingIdeal as an aperitif, this wine is also the ideal accompaniment to fish in sauce or white meats.

Champagne Taittinger only produces a vintage when the harvest is of exceptional quality. The bottles are first aged in the cellars for several years allowing the aromas to slowly mature and the wine to develop length and complexity before they are ready to be enjoyed. Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2009 is exclusively blended from first press wines. It consists of Chardonnay (50%) mostly from the Grands Crus in the Côte des Blancs region and Pinot Noir (50%) harvested mostly from the Grands Crus in Montagne de Reims and the beginning of the Marne Valley.
