Taitttinger Brut Reserve: A Delicate Champagne
The Brut Reserve from Taittinger is a Champagne produced from 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier from 35 different plots and several vintages. Taittinger's Brut Reserve is aged for at least 3 years in the cellar before it is released on the market.
Brut Reserve from Taittinger has a golden straw colour, with fine bubbles and persistent foam. The nose reveals fruity aromas and brioche. Fragrances of peaches, white flowers and vanilla beans also present themselves. Harmonious in the mouth, the wine proves to be delicate and highlights tasty fruits with touches of honey.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Taittinger's NV Brut ReserveâÇöa blend of more than 35 different vineyards, assembling 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, including 30% reserve winesâÇöhas 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 RosÃ© Prestige yet less vinous and is rather lean and fresh. Tasted in November 2017.
