ColourPale yellow in colour, its fine bubbles generate a generous ring of foam.
AromaThe nose offers a mellow fruitiness with white and yellow fleshed fruit such as William pear, greengages and mirabelle plums. This is followed by notes of white flowers and dried fruit.
PalateOn the palate, the attack is fresh, rich, mature and generous. The mid-palate is dominated by fruit in syrup, followed by slightly honeyed notes on the finish.
Growing ConditionsThe year began with a harsh winter, characterised by severe frosts and frequent snow. Milder weather arrived in April and saved the vines from spring frosts. The vegetation, then, grew quickly immediately after bud break. Storms, rain and low temperatures resulted in some outbreaks of flower abortion and uneven grape size. This capricious weather continued, and the appearance of some mildew between June and July became inevitable. Fortunately, a sunny, dry, hot August, with cool nights, provided ideal conditions for the grapes to ripen.
Vinification/MaturationThe dates for star ting the harvests ranged from 8 to 21 September. The bunches were in excellent health and we benefited from almost summery weather during the picking. The Chardonnay wines were rich, structured, and varied. They offered a broad range, from fruity, grapefruit freshness to a more evolved character with aromas of pear and pineapple. The Pinot Noirs presented an intense bouquet with fresh notes of peach. On the palate, they were generous and full-bodied. Some expressed a superb minerality. Good acidity and remarkable freshness suggest that 2009 will be a high quality vintage.

Recommended Food PairingIdeal as an aperitif, this wine is also the ideal accompaniment to 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%) and Pinot Noir (50%) harvested mostly from the Grands Crus in Montagne de Reims and the and the beginning of the Marne Valley.
