aittinger is one of the few Champgane Houses to remain owned and actively managed by the family named on the label.Brut Reserve is a sophisticated champagne, whose quality rests upon Taittinger's skill to select the region's finest grapes, using mostly their own vineyards which gives greater control and consistent quality.The delicate Taittinger style is enhanced by using the just the first presings and basing the cuvee on 40% Chardonnay, on average twice the percentage found in most standard cuvees. Three years ageing on the lees brings a complexity and roundness to the wine, making it dry, light and elegant with a fine mousse, fresh citrus fruit and subtle, weightier notes of peach and brioche; Taittinger Brut Reserve characterises the Taittinger house style.
On the nose, the champagne is dominated by white flowers, green apple, brioche and a trace of minerality. On the palate there are notes of stone fruits, a certain nuttiness and a hint of honey supporting the freshness of the acidity. UK stock receives an additional 6 months post-disgorgement ageing so it is ready to drink upon release but cellaring for a few years will reveal greater depths. The peritif champagne par excellence but one which has sufficient backbone to be drunk with fish and even spicy dishes.
