Taittinger Brut Réserve Champagne
The Taittinger Brut Reserve NV (with gift box) is a beautifully brilliant golden colour, with bubbles which are fine and a mousse both discreet and persistent. On your palate, the flavour is both fruity and bready, exuding aromas of peach, white flowers, honey and vanilla pod. This lively, fresh Champagne is aged for three to four years in the cellars where it achieves perfect maturity and well-developed aromatic maturity too.
Ageing: 3 to 4 years. A perfect accompaniment to white meat, lamb with chanterelles, crayfish and mushroom quiche. This is a vegan wine.
About the BrandThe 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.
