Taittinger Brut Réserve is a blend of Chardonnay wines (40%) and Pinot wines (60%) from 30 to 50 different vineyards and matured to perfection. Such a high proportion of Chardonnay is seldom found among the great champagnes.
Taittinger Brut Reserve Non Vintage is aged for three to four years in the cellars where it achieves perfect maturity and well-developed aromatic potential.
This champagne can be drunk as an aperitif or with food, preferably with an evening meal. It is a perfect accompaniment to white meat (lamb with chanterelles), crayfish or mushroom quiche.
The colour is brilliant, golden straw yellow. The bubbles are fine. The mousse is both discreet and persistent.
The nose, very expressive and open, is both fruity and bready. It exudes 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.
