Product information

Brut Réserve Taittinger is one of the last great Champagne Houses to remain independent and is owned and actively managed by the family named on the label. The family are guardians of Taittinger's style quality and integrity. The hallmark of their fine Champagnes is the high proportion of Chardonnay used in their winemaking which is key, in the Champagne region, for producing wines of great elegance and finesse. Additionally, with its vineyard ownership of 288 ha (one of the largest in Champagne), Taittinger can guarantee a flawless signature, and wines heralded worldwide for their consistent quality. Our signature cuvée, Taittinger Brut Réserve, is assembled from more than 35 crus and incorporates 40% Chardonnay - this high level is seldom offered in a non-vintage Champagne. Distinguished by a delicate nose marked by subtle brioche notes, it has a palate of considerable depth and balance with hints of honey and fresh fruit with a long, fresh finish.

History
Champagne Taittinger's origins date back to 1734 with the founding of the original House by Jacques Fourneaux. The Taittinger link was established in 1931 when Pierre Taittinger acquired the House. He was stationed at the Château de la Marquetterie when serving in the 1st World War and fell in love with the property and its vineyards and eventually purchased the company. Today, the Reims based House is one of the few key Champagne houses to remain owned and actively managed by the family named on the label.
Regional Information
The Champagne wine region is famous for its excellent sparkling wines. It is the most northerly wine growing region in France and its unique chalky soils and climate provide ideal growing conditions. The grapes for the Brut Réserve come from prime vineyards throughout Champagne, with approximately 50% coming from the Taittinger Estate.

Vinification Details
Produced each year from 95% first pressings of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, this is the definitive cuvée of Champagne Taittinger and is a carefully balanced blend of wine from more than 35 crus. It also includes a proportion of reserve wine to ensure consistency from year to year. 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.

Good

There is nothing essentially wrong with this, its a good quality Champagne with plenty of fizz & a pleasant mild brioche taste. For me personally, its just a little too sweet, but I like Champagne thats extremely dry. Everyone else who tried it loved it so Id buy it again for a celebration but only if it was on special offer as I think the normal £35 price tag is too expensive.

Sensational

Absolutely delicious, had this at a party where a few different bottles of Champagne were opened, this one was by far the best. Complex and refined.

Not only with a gift box, but also...

Someone below said that he or she didn't get gift box thus disappointed and gave one star. Well, I guess other people are luckier. If you order now -Jun 2014-, not only you get gift box, you also get World Cup 2014 limited edition box and bottle. Nice surprise!

very nice tasting champers

Had this on Christmas day and it was very palatable, not too dry, and very crisp and held it's fizz. My husband is not a big fan of champers but preferred this over others he's had. I love a good glass of fizz and will buy again
