Brut Réserve de Taittinger: a delicate champagne

The estate

The history of the Taittinger Champagne House began in the early 20th century. Ran by Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger and his two children, Clovis and Vitalie, the Taittinger House has managed to preserve its family spirit by producing champagnes that are resolutely Chardonnay in style. Since January 1st 2020, Vitalie Taittinger is the President of the Taittinger Champagne House.

The vineyard

The vineyards owned by the Taittinger Champagne House spread across 288 hectares of vines and include 37 different crus. This makes Taittinger the third largest vineyard in Champagne. The entire vineyard bears a High Environmental Value certificate.

Vinification and ageing

Taittinger's Brut Réserve has been aged for a minimum of 3 years in the cellar to perfect its aromas, before being released onto the market.

The blend

Taittinge's Brut Réserve is a Champagne that comprises 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, stemming from more than 35 different crus and spread over several harvests.

The tasting

Colour

Brut Réserve by Taittinger has a brilliant golden straw colour, with fine bubbles and a discreet and persistent foam.

Nose

The nose reveals fruity and brioche aromas. Fragrances of peach and white flower emerge, blending with notes of vanilla pod.

Palate

Harmonious in the mouth, the wine is delicate, revealing delicious notes of honey and fruit.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Taittinger's NV Brut Reserve--a blend of more than 35 different vineyards, assembling 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, including 30% reserve wines--has a clear, fresh and vinous bouquet with Pinot Meunier flavors in front. Bottled in 2014 and disgorged in March 2017 with nine grams of dosage, this is a lithe and fresh but mouth-filling Brut with round and aromatic fruit. It tastes almost as charming as the Rosé Prestige yet less vinous and is rather lean and fresh. Tasted in November 2017.
