Champagne Taittinger Overview
2002: An exceptional summer of sun and hot weather created a vintage that produced the finest quality grapes. 2002 began with low rainfall and a mild winter, this combined with the summer led to a fruitful harvest with large quantities of grapes. 2002 is regarded as the best vintage in the past two decades. On the nose an aroma of delicate fruit, on the palate a well rounded intensity of brioche and fresh apricot with a real creaminess developing. A champagne with great structure with a long lingering finish.

2006: The vintage began with a cold winter, little frost and few spells of rain. The spring was more positive but there was still several episodes of hail that affected several plots. However, the summer weather was impressive and the sun shine proved vital in the growth and ripeness of the grapes. Considerable ageing potential. A pale gold champagne, that is still relatively youthful, however already intense flavours are refreshing with hints of apple and a lasting creamy finish.

2008: The vintage 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.

“2002: Pungent, soft, Pinot-like and sweetish. Easy to drink but not very challenging though it certainly isn’t too fizzy.”

“The 2002 Millésimé Brut is a beautiful, poised wine that artfully balances fruit and structure. The fruit here reveals slightly honeyed overtones, along with suggestions of smoke and minerals that add further complexity. This medium-bodied Champagne closes on a strong note with a long, clean finish. ”

“2006: Creamy, baked apple, a certain smokiness. Well built, solid and sophisticated. Very enjoyable and immediate. Medium bodied. (RH)”

““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.””
