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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
