With varietals consisting of 50% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier and 35% Chardonnay, the Taittinger vineyard is an unsurpassed example of that House's own style of wine, in which Chardonnay plays such a significant role. The vineyard's own production is supplemented by contractual acquisition of grapes from independent suppliers operating the finest vineyards in Champagne. In proportion to its size, Taittinger is, amongst the great Champagne houses, one of the growers with the largest supply from the Côte des Blancs, the preferred place of origin of the Chardonnay grands crus. .

Fragrant and toasty, sweet apple and citrus nose. Nuanced and delicious. Toasty breadth, complexity, lively and elegant. Long and pure.

Absolutely delicious. A combination of intensity and impeccable balance is the hallmark of this 1995 blanc de blancs. Precise aromas and flavors of citrus confit, vanilla pastry and hazelnut get a boost from the firm structure, and it keeps unraveling its charms through the long finish. Drink now through 2012.

Impressive and seamless from the get-go, featuring lemon, apricot, smoke and spice aromas and flavors that build to the long conclusion. Itandrsquo;s creamy, yet firm and fresh, with all its elements integrated for an alluring profile overall. Thereandrsquo;s wonderful finesse and length. Drink now through 2028.

A delicious, welcoming, generous wine that also manages to keep the pure, mineral character of Chardonnay. It has a very direct, linear, steely taste. Great acidity plays a part, as do ripe, fruity flavors and fine balance. This wine should develop well, but itandrsquo;s delicious now.

Tasting Notes:

The colour is pale yellow with silvery glints. The bubbles are exceptionally fine and abundant and form a lively and lasting elegant necklace of mousse.
The nose is intensely fine and ethereal, reminiscent of mineral aromas and delicate fragrance of white blossom, with overtones of fresh almonds, vanilla and a subtle hint of pine forests.
The first impression on the palate is of extreme freshness, with dominant flavours of citrus fruits, lemon zest and grapefruit and a lightly acidulous, beautifully balanced finish.
The aftertaste is lively, long and complex.

Blassgelbe Farbe, feine, intensive Perlage, Noten von weissen Blüten, Bienenwachs, Limetten und frischer Ananas. Am Gaumen intensiv, lebendig, finessenreich und elegant, es dominieren Zitrus- und Lindenblütenaromen.
