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. .

  • Champagne really goes with everything. It’s the best wine for celebrations, to soothe heart-break, to perk up a Tuesday or to get a party started. It goes with lobster, with greasy french fries and (reluctantly) with a basket of strawberries. Sure, the consumption peaks at New Years Eve and rosé champagne gets an extra push on Valentines day. Bu... Read More

  • The major auction market is bullish on bubbly. Recent auctions of Champagne at Bonham's, Christie's and Wally's are seeing their posh products leave the stage at prices  which exceed high estimates.  Bonham's saw a bottle of 1914 vintage Pol Roger sell for £ 5,640 at their October 24 when the high estimate for the World War I-era bubbly was £4,0...

  • Dom Peri doesn't really do it for me, either.  Nothing made by Moet et Chandon has really wowed me, in France or here.  For less money, I'll take a P-J Belle Epoque.  Or Taittinger, or Billecart-Salmon, or a bunch of things.  For way less, Pierre Paillard (grower stuff) wowed me recently. Speaking of underwhelming wines, I had two bottles of Roa...

  • I'm not dure I understand what your asking, BB.  From your title it seems that you cannot find information on the bottle that identifies it.  However, the label is readable and contains about all the information you might need.  So, I'm guessing that you are asking about the various nomenclatures that you see on the label.  I am not really an ex...

  • I am a very casual wine drinker and just "won" a bottle of sparkling wine in a family gift exchange from my cooky, eccentric aunt that I can't identify anywhere.  I'm not sure if it is good or bad, past it's prime or just an okay bottle I can feel comfortable drinking for no particular occasion.I have attached a picture, but the label reads as f...

    No written review

    Wine review by runningbear


  • In glossary terms, a prestige cuvée is an exceptional Champagne, generally aged extensively and very carefully blended from the best parcels, which sell for a premium. Historically speaking, and with some irony in the timing, the concept was developed by Robert-Jean de Vogüé, a director at Champagne Moët & Chandon during the Great Depression. He... Read More

  • Domaine Carneros By Taittinger le Reve Blanc de Blancs 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Dry, earthy and fairly dense on the nose with notes of white flowers, brie rind, dried citrus fruits and butchers 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... Read More
