Taittinger Brut Réserve NV Champagne

"To my grandson, who will one day be an entrepreneur and be the guardian of the family tradition." Little did the author know how true this prophecy of Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger would prove to be - it was a gutsy move buying back the family business in 2008 - but one that has truly paid off. One of the last big independent, family-owned houses that uphold the name not only on the label, but in their management; Pierre-Emmanuel remains President, whilst his son, Clovis, is Export Director, and his daughter, Vitalie, handles the company's artistic vision. Comtes de Champagne is the pinnacle of Taittinger's range offering finesse, elegance and layers of complexity.

As quality is of paramount importance, Taittinger only uses grapes from the finest vineyards in Champagne. Ranking in the top two major Champagne houses who self supply all of their grapes, by owning some 288 hectares of vineyards in the best localities. This ensures a regular supply of approximately 50% of Taittinger's annual needs, significantly more than other well known Champagne houses. The remaining 50% come from carefully selected growers, some of whom have links going back four generations or more.

The hallmark of Taittinger Champagne is the high percentage of Chardonnay used in the winemaking which amounts to anything from 40% in the NV to 100% in the prestigious Comtes de Champagne. The Chardonnay dominance provides for a style of elegance, delicacy and finesse which is recognised worldwide and has earned the house many accolades and awards over the years.

The Brut Réserve is renowned for its golden colour with a consistent, fine lingering mousse. The nose is light and delicate with hints of peach and brioche. On the palate it has considerable depth, yet is quite light in style with a subtle elegance and a long fresh finish. Produced each year from 95% first pressings of Pinot Noir 35%, Pinot Meurnier 25% and Chardonnay 40%, this is the definitive cuvée of Champagne Taittinger. Each year the blend includes a proportion of reserve wine to ensure consistency in the house style. Prior to release the Brut Réserve is aged for 3-4 years giving the wine depth whilst allowing the component parts to become fully integrated.

Grape Varieties: Chardonnay 40%, Pinot Noir 35%, Pinot Meunier 25%
Dosage: 9 g/L

The jeroboam comes in a Taittinger branded wooden box.

“Particularly fine and strong stream of bubbles with lots of lemon and lime notes and hints of tropical fruits like guava and pineapple and some creaminess that you don't often see in these non vintage champagnes. Nice and dry and lingering. Lovely today on a hot London day. This current cuvee must have its core part of the blend from one of the great vintages like 2010. Wish this was declared on the label.”

“Tasted blind. Overall score placed it fourth out of 12 wines. Light straw. Sweetish nose – one of the few! Candied violets on the nose. Light and off dry. Quite chunky, lime-marmalade impression. Not much undertow. Good texture and refreshment value on the finish. A little chew on the end. Lots of acidity underneath. ”

“Green apple, fine powdery texture, not much yeastiness. Delicate, light and dainty. Middle of the road style, likely to appeal widely. (RH)

“The nonvintage Taittinger cuvée, with its lively mousse, is soft and creamily fruity. While the bottle tasted was young, it had enough ripe white fruits and lime-juice flavors to balance out the freshness. Typically for Taittinger, Chardonnay is an important element in the blend, giving the wine its final mineral tautness.”

“(roughly 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier; 9 g/l dosage; L3348NA09100): Light gold. Poached pear, peach, orange and honey on the fruity nose. Broad and fleshy on entry, then tighter and more tangy in the mid-palate, offering juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors with subtle ginger and toasted grain nuances. Shows a supple, round character on the finish, with the ginger and peach notes repeating. Note that this bottling is labelled as "Reserve" for every country aside from the United States. In fact, I tasted a bottle labeled as such here in New York this fall, from Lot L3348NA9200. How it wound up here, I've no idea. ”
