The Winery

Taittinger

Taittinger is one of the few Champagne houses still owned and operated by its original, founding family. Distinguished for their unique higher proportion of Chardonnay and longer aging period before release, the house repeatedly produces critically acclaimed wines with consistent scores. The prestigious Champagne tends to be more delicate and refreshing, and they make a range of styles from demi-sec and rosé to limited edition special releases. From Grand Cru vineyards in Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims regions, Taittinger Champagne is elegant, luxurious and will remain a cellar-worthy collectible for years to come.

Tasting Notes

WA91
The NV Brut La Française is based on 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, all fermented in stainless steel and blended with 30% of reserve wines. It is a pure, fresh and well-structured Brut that seems more elegant, complex and round than the Brut Réserve. The persistent finish is clear, fresh and well structured, with refreshing lemon flavors and a nice grip. My sample was said to be bottled in 2014 and disgorged in March 2017 with nine grams of dosage. There is good length and tension here as well as sweet cherry aromas in the aftertaste.
WS90
Smoke and toast accents lace crushed raspberry, candied lemon zest and apple blossom notes in this firm, aperitif-style Champagne.
