Champagne Taittinger only produces a vintage when the harvest is of exceptional quality.
The bottles are first aged in the cellars for several years – allowing the aromas to slowly mature and the wine to develop length and complexity – before they are ready to be enjoyed.
Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2012 is exclusively blended from first press wines. It consists of Chardonnay (50%) and Pinot Noir (50%) harvested mostly from the Grands Crus in Montagne de Reims and the borders of the Vallée de la Marne.
The 2012 vintage has produced wines characterized by freshness and vivacity, with a perfectly integrated acidity that suggests they will age very well.
Intense and mineral, the nose combines floral and citrus notes (lemon and grapefruit).
On the palate, fruit, vinosity and richness predominate.
