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.
