Domaine Carneros By Taittinger le Reve Blanc de Blancs 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dry, earthy and fairly dense on the nose with notes of white flowers, brie rind, dried citrus fruits and butcher’s wax. Very fine mousse in the mouth, this is elegant and really has a wonderful texture, rich yet delicate with good finesse. The flavors are dense if not fresh with earthy floral, waxy, polleny notes over dried citrus fruit and dried pineapple. There's a nuttiness that emerges on the finish as well, which shows both the acid backbone of this wine as well as a lovely creamy edge. An old man in a leather chair kind of Sparkler. 93pts

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. .
