Taittinger Champagne Blend Champagne Brut Millésimé 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

A classic blend of select Chardonnay and Pinot grapes produced from a single vintage, this elegant Champagne is characterized by full fruit flavors with nuances of toast and yeast balanced by refined Chardonnay elegance.

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. .

The 2002 Millésimé Brut is a beautiful, poised wine that artfully balances fruit and structure. The fruit reveals slightly honeyed overtones, along with suggestions of smoke and minerals that add further complexity. This medium-bodied Champagne closes on a strong note with a long, clean finish. The blend is equal parts Pinot Noir (Montagne de Reims, Vallee de la Marne) and Chardonnay (Cote des Blancs), all from grand cru villages. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012. This is Lot: L7210MZ01600 June 14, 2007.

Brut Millésimé 2002 - Taittinger: Brut Millésimé 2002 - Champagner von TaittingerEines steht fest, nicht jeder Jahrgang bringt einen Brut Millésimé zu Tage. Nur bei wirklich auffallend guten Ernteergebnissen beschließt sich der Kellermeister von Taittinger zur Herstellung eines Jahrgangchampagners. Zusammengesetzt ist der Brut Millésimé aus 45 Prozent Chardonnay und 55 Prozent Pinot Noir plus Pinot Meunier. Die Zahl ist fast nicht greifbar, aber etwa 4000 Kilogramm Trauben finden den Weg in die Taittinger-Pressen. Es entsteht aus 2050 Litern des beim ersten Durchgang gewonnen Mostes, der sogenannten Cuvée, ein Prachtkerl an Champagner. Er zeigt im Glas eine goldgelbe Farbe. Sein köstlich fruchtiges Bukett enthält Aromen von Pfirsich und leicht gesüßter Grapefruit, dazu tauchen feine Duftspuren weißer Blüten und von Teeblättern auf, die einen Anflug von Menthol enthalten. Der Champagner zeigt sich am Gaumen lebendig und gleichzeitig geschmeidig. Am Ende überraschen uns noch leichte Aromen von Zitrusfrucht und Quitte.Aufgrund seiner Aromen eignet er sich außerordentlich als Aperitif, vor allem in der kalten Winterzeit er begleitet aber auch hervorragend durch ein Menü.Weingut: TaittingerLand: FrankreichRegion: ChampagneRebsorte: 45% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot MeunierInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 12,0 Vol.%Lagerfähigkeit: 8 - 10 Jahre ab Jahrgang Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 8-12°C Champagner - Sekt - Prickelndes > Frankreich > Champagne

Precise, pure aromas of lime, lemon ice, chalk, nutmeg and mint. Brisk, spicy and intensely flavored, with lively acidity giving the bright flavors excellent focus. Firmly structured but already delicious. This classic, light Champagne has breadth and character. Finishes with sneaky persistence.

This is singing today. Floral, graphite, citrus and ginger aromas and flavors mesh nicely with the smooth texture and lively structure. Fine lingering finish caps off the experience. This will age well too. Drink now through 2010.
