Champagne Taittinger Overview
+
Taittinger produce a vintage champagne only when the harvest has been of exceptional quality. Their Brut Vintage is always a blend of juice exclusively from the first pressing of the grapes and is aged for four years in the cellars, allowing the aromas to mature slowly and the length and complexity of the wine to develop. It consists of Chardonnay from Grand Crus of the Côte des Blancs and Pinot Noir from Grand Crus of the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne.

Weather: The 2009 vintage was a continental, sunny year with a real winter that was very cold and dry followed by a glorious sun-filled summer and almost no rain in August and September. The harvest was incomparable in terms of quality and produced consistent, fresh and crunchy grapes.

Technical Information:

Dosage: 9 g/l
Drink: 2016-2023

Tasting Note: Pale yellow with a constant fine stream of bubbles. Initially on the nose there are yeasty bread aromas that give way to a sweeter fruity scent. On the palate hints of lemon and mandarin are present that leads to a slighty honeyed mid-palate. The finish is exceptionally long and generous with an abundance of fresh and rich fruits. A vintage that is ready to drink but given some time the maturity will only add to the flavours.

“Vegy edge to the nose. Then quite pungent and with definite sweetness. Competent. Tight knit. Lightly ginger beery.”

“Good strong stream of bubbles. Initially on the nose you get lots of fresh apple and hints of baking bread and that creamy custard and french pastries that all come out more as you taste. There is a lovely freshness and delicacy to the mouthfeel, with ripe cooked apple richness and tantalising glimpses of that bricohe character. Good balance of acidity and roundness.”

“Lovely yeast-complexed gunpowdery nose with lemon curd, meringue, white flowers. Superb acidity expressed as vitality and drive. Smooth and caressing but at the same time invigorating and energizing. Very youthful still shortly after release with potential.”
