Champagne Taittinger Overview
+
Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2008 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.

2008 began with a frosty winter that to affected the vines and resulted in a late bud burst. However, the weather in May improved leading to the vines growing fast. Disease in the vineyards had to be controlled due to regular damp conditions. However, a bright and warm summer has created a harvest renowned for its liveliness and freshness.

On the nose, yeasty bread aromas combine with an abundance of ripe fruits. The palate is full of lemon and mandarin hints, this freshness is continued throughout to the finish which lingers with complex flavours.

Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir 50%, Chardonnay 50%
Dosage: 9 g/L

“This wine has all the elements of greatness with the lead role given to its racy elegance. So linear and beautifully vibrant on the finely focused, long and lean palate. Plenty of stylish restraint but the wine is starting to show more toastiness alongside the cool mineral characters and citric and floral fruit profile. Still a sleeping beauty but about to wake up.”

“Taittinger’s 2008 Brut Millesimé is a powerful, bold wine. The intensity of the year has been tempered by lovely mid-palate depth and what feels like dosage that is on the higher end of the spectrum, which means Taittinger’s 2008 is more accessible now than many other 2008. Dried pear, brioche, honey, mint, chamomile and wild flowers blossom into the creamy, inviting finish. There is a lot to like. Although not especially complex, the 2008 should drink well for the next decade or so. And the 2008 Comtes? Well, it is shaping up to be epic.”
