Description & Technical Information
-
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: 2014 was characterised by mild temperatures and frequent rainfall.There was some frost in late March but thankfully it did not cause any significant damage.This was followed by a spell of hot weather which brought forward the vine’s vegetative cycle by 10 days. Full flowering began in June. Summer was a combination of dry, wet and cold spells.The year was marked by an unprecedented outbreak of disease, which endangered the fragile Pinot Noir skins. Harvest took place from 8th to 20th September.The Chardonnays combined notes of white blossom with citrus notes and their palate full and acidic.The Pinot Noirs had subtle, fresh aromas of tart white fruits and scattered notes of red fruits.They showed a vivid and fresh structure on the palate.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | Pinot Noir: Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne | Chardonnay: Côte des Blancs
Grape Varieties: 50% Pinot Noir, 50% Chardonnay
Ageing: 6 years on the lees

Tasting Note: There is bundles of fruit with grapefruit, pear and apple in abundance.

Bright and clean on the finish leaving you ready for a second sip.
