Taittinger Brut Vintage 2006 Champagne

More vintages: 2002, 2008, 2009"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. Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2006 is a blend of grape exclusively from the first pressing and is aged for 4 years. It consists of Chardonnay from the 'Grand Crus' of the Cöte des Blancs and Pinot Noir from the 'Grand Crus' of the Montagne de Reims and the start of the Vallée de la Marne.

2006 began with very dry weather especially during early spring, this was followed by a couple of months with heavy rainfall. The vines thrived throughout the early stages of summer and the grapes developed well, leading to an exceptionally hot and sunny June and July had expectations soaring. An overcast and spells of wet patches in August threatened to affect the grapes in their final stages but warm and bright conditions in September formed grapes that now show very expressive in the wines.

A mouse of extreme fine bubbles stems from a pale yellow colour. On the nose, expressive forms of yeasty bread aromas give way to fresh fruits. On the palate a sweet and structured fruit with hints of grapefruit. A lasting finish that lingers.
