The grapes for the Brut Reserve come from prime vineyards throughout Champagne, with approximately 50% coming from the Taittinger Estate.
Produced each year from the first pressings of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay this is the definitive cuvée of Champagne Taittinger. It is a carefully balanced blend of wines from up to twenty-five different ‘crus’. It also includes a proportion of reserve wine to ensure consistency from year to year. Prior to release the Brut Reserve is aged for 3-4 years giving the wine depth whilst allowing the component parts to become fully integrated. Such a high proportion of Chardonnay is seldom found among the great Champagnes.
A brilliant golden straw-yellow colour. The bubbles are fine. The mousse is both discreet and persistent. On the nose, very expressive and open. It is both fruity and bready, exuding 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.
Aged for three to four years in the cellars where it achieves perfect maturity and well-developed aromatic maturity.
Taittinger Nocturne is a pale yellow in colour with delicate fine bubbles its nose is subtle, fresh and reminiscent of white blossom and ripe fruit, with overtones of yellow peaches and dried apricots.
Taittinger Nocturne is a Champagne to be enjoyed at the end of an evening. It is the perfect accompaniment to dessert or foie gras and will gladly have Champagne lovers celebrating all night long.
Taittinger Prestige Rosé immediately stands out for its intense, shimmering hue whose secret lies in the fact that it is a blend, which is more complex and costly to produce. A quantity of still red wine (15%) produced from the best Pinot Noirs from Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys is in fact added to the final blend, to give this cuvée its unmistakable colour and vibrant intensity on the palate. The high proportion of Chardonnay (30%) that completes the blend brings the elegance and delicacy that underpin Taittinger’s signature style.
Tasting notes. The intense and brilliant body is bright pink in colour. The bubbles are fine, and the mousse persistent. The full nose, wonderfully expressive, is both fresh and young. It gives off aromas of red fruits (freshly crushed wild raspberry, cherry, blackcurrant). On the palate, this wine strikes a fine balance of velvety and full-bodied. The flavours are reminiscent of fresh, crisp red fruits. The palate can be summed up in four words: lively, fruity, fresh and elegant, as only a rosé blend can be.
Drinking suggestions. Taittinger Prestige Rosé can be enjoyed both early on and at the end of an evening. Deliciously fragranced for an aperitif, it is also a subtle accompaniment to fruit desserts, including fruit tart, fruit salad and red fruit crumble.
