Champagne Taittinger Overview
+
Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2009 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.

2009 began with a harsh winter, characterised by severe frosts and frequent snow. Milder weather arrived in April and saved the vine from spring frosts. A capricious weather characterised by storms, rain and low temperatures lasted until Summer and a dry sunny and hot month of August provided ideal conditions for the grapes to ripen and be in good health.

The champagne is a pale yellow but has 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 abundance of more fresh and rich fruits. A vintage that is ready to drink but given some time the maturity will only add to the flavours.

Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir 50%, Chardonnay 50%
Dosage: 9 g/L
Disgorged: May 2016

“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.”
