Champagne Taittinger Overview
+
The Taittinger Collection first began in 1983, when Claude Taittinger approached his first artist, Hungarian Victor Vasarely. The idea was to create a unique bottle for the 1978 vintage champagne. Salgado is the 14th edition of the collection and it was designed by Brazilian artist Sebastiao Salgado. The bottle features a leopard captured drinking from the Barab River Valley in Damaraland, Namibia, in 2005. The bottle contains Taittinger Vintage 2008.

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

“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.”
