Champagne Taittinger Overview
+
Produced each year from 95% first pressing of the grapes, 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, Taittinger Brut Réserve NV is aged for 3-4 years giving the wine depth whilst allowing the component parts to become fully integrated.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | 50% Taittinger Estate | Over 35 Crus
Grape Varieties: 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier
Ageing: 3-4 years on the lees
Dosage: 9 g/l

Tasting Note: Renowned for its golden colour with a consistent and 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. A great non-vintage brut.

Taittinger Brut Réserve NV 3L jeroboams come presented in a beautifully branded wooden case.

“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. ”
