Taittinger Brut Reserve NV In Taittinger Box (75cl)

Tasting Notes:
 
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 Variety:

40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier

Dosage: 11.5g/l

Ageing: 3 to 4 years

Serving:

A perfect accompaniment to white meat (lamb with chanterelles), crayfish or mushroom quiche.

Background Information:

The grapes for the Brut Reserve come from prime vineyards throughout Champagne, with approximately 50% coming from the Taittinger Estate.

Produced each year from the first pressings of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay this is the definitive cuvée of Champagne Taittinger. It is a carefully balanced blend of wines from up to twenty-five different 'crus'. It also includes a proportion of reserve wine to ensure consistency from year to year. Prior to release the Brut Reserve is aged for 3-4 years giving the wine depth whilst allowing the component parts to become fully integrated. Such a high proportion of Chardonnay is seldom found among the great Champagnes.
