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

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 Côte 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. Distinguished for its extensive vineyard holdings of 752 acres, including prestigious Grand Cru vineyards. Highest-quality production: exceeding minimum aging for all cuvées, high percentage of estate grapes, sustainable practices. Uses a higher proportion of Chardonnay grapes in its blends than other large houses—Taittinger’s unique personality. Critical acclaim: consistently outstanding (90+) scores, worldwide recognition among connoisseurs Read less
