‘This is a 50/50 blend of pinot noir and chardonnay. Immediately powerful and intense yet with an ethereal lightness of touch. A beautifully crafted wine of great length and power. Minerally and chalky. First pressings from grand cru vineyards.’
Light straw colour, with a faint trace of copper. The bouquet is fresh and clean, smelling of nougat, vanilla ice-cream and meringue. There are attractive, subtle touches of yeast autolysis character. The palate is soft and smooth, nicely modulated and finishing clean and fairly dry but still soft and creamy. The acidity is refreshing. It's drier and more crisp on the finish than I remember this wine. Very good aperitif style.
A blend led by long-ageing chardonnay, Taittinger's non-vintage spends a minimum of three years in its cellar prior to release. It retains accurate precision of citrus and stone fruits, with age contributing complex nuances of nutmeg and mixed spice.
The Taittinger Champagne house was born in Reims in 1734 and their signature Brut Reserve mirrors their proud and distinguished past. The Brut Reserve is a blend of wines sourced from 34 different vineyards and vintages, containing Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (40%), as well as a high proportion of Chardonnay (40%) that is unique among non-vintage Champagnes. The delicately balanced Brut Reserve is produced every year without exception and spends a minimum of three years ageing in barrels.
