Champagne Taittinger Brut Reserve NV
Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay make up this classic blend produced by the family-run Taittinger Champagne house for nearly a century.
The Brut Réserve is renowned for its golden yellow colour with a consistent, fine, lingering mousse. The nose is light and delicate with hints of fruits and brioche. The palate is lean, but has considerable depth and elegance with a long fresh finish.
The Taittinger family has producing world-class Champagne for nearly a century and its aim has always been the pursuit of excellence.
The Brut Réserve is produced each year from 95% first pressings of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay and this is the definitive cuvée of Champagne Taittinger. It also includes a proportion of reserve wine int he belnd to ensure the blend is as excellent year in and year out.
Prior to release the Brut Réserve is aged for 3-4 years giving the wine depth whilst allowing the component parts to become fully integrated. The grapes for the Brut Réserve come from prime vineyards throughout Champagne, with approximately 50% coming from the Taittinger Estate. It is a carefully balanced blend of wines from more than 35 'crus'.
