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.

This unique and rare Taittinger Brut 3 Vintage Case is an exceptional celebration of the diversity of vintage champagne. Showcasing the qualities of the incredible 2002, 2008 and 2009 vintages expressed with the characteristic Chardonnay-dominant Taittinger style, this Limited Edition case includes one 75cl bottle each of Taittinger Brut Vintage 2002, Taittinger Brut Vintage 2008 and Taittinger Brut Vintage 2009.

Taittinger Brut Vintage 2002: An exceptional summer of sun and hot weather created a vintage that produced the finest quality grapes seen in the last twenty years. The 2002 season began with low rainfall and a mild winter: this combined with the summer led to a fruitful harvest with large quantities of grapes. 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 and a long lingering finish.

Taittinger Brut Vintage 2008: The 2008 season began with a frosty winter that affected the vines and resulted in a late bud burst. However, the weather in May improved resulting in fast-growing vines. Disease in the vineyards had to be controlled due to regular damp conditions. However, a bright and warm summer 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 with a freshness that continues throughout to the finish, lingering long with complex flavours.

Taittinger Brut Vintage 2009: 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. 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.
