Champagne Taittinger is one of the few remaining family owned and operated Champagne houses. The firm is distinguished for its extensive vineyard holdings of 752 acres, including prestigious Grand Cru vineyards in the Cote des Blancs and Montagne de Reims regions. Unlike most large houses, Champagne Taittinger relies primarily on estate grapes for its portfolio of Champagnes. Also unique are the higher proportion of Chardonnay in its wines that gives Taittinger its signature style, and the time devoted to aging the wines before release?most often greatly exceeding the legal requirement, in a practice that also has become a Taittinger hallmark.
This Champagne is pale gold in the glass with fine, pinpoint bubbles. On the nose, aromas of white fruit and wild berries precede flavors of toast and yeast. Excellent minerality and refined acidity culminate in a lasting, full-bodied, round finish.
