Champagne Taittinger was founded by Pierre Taittinger after he visited the Champagne region as a liaison officer during World War One and fell in love with the place. The house was sold but bought back by Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger in 2006, so once again family owned.
Champagne Taittinger grow about 50% of the grapes they need for their cuvees, the rest being bought from local growers and co-operatives with whom they have had long relationships.
This NV Brut Reserve Champagne is a delicious Champagne. it is a brilliant golden straw-yellow colour. The bubbles are fine. The mousse is both discreet and persistent. On the nose, very expressive and open. It is both fruity and bready, exuding aromas of peach, white flowers and vanilla pod.
On the palate, this lively fresh wine is at once in harmony. This is a delicate wine with flavours of fresh fruit and honey.
Aged for three to four years in the cellars where it achieves perfect maturity and well-developed aromatic maturity.
Grape Varieties – 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier
