Taittinger Brut Réserve is one of the finest non-vintage Champagnes because of the large proportion of Chardonnay (40%) added, which makes him an exceptional Brut. Also, it is a very balanced Champagne and an absolute constant quality, so the Taittinger house is particularly proud

4 /5

- The Brut Reserve is renowned for its golden yellow colour with a consistent, fine, lingering mousse.
- The nose is light and delicate with hints of fruits and brioche.
- The palate is lean, but has considerable depth and elegance with a long fresh finish.
- There is no specific drinking occasion for the Brut Reserve. Its elegance and lightness give it the flexibility to be the Champagne for the moment but it is always an excellent aperitif.
- 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier.
- Produced each year from 95% first pressings of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay this is the definitive cuvee of Champagne Taittinger. It also includes a proportion of reserve wine to ensure consistency from year to year. Prior to release the Brut Reserve is aged for 3-4 years giving the wine depth whilst allowing the component parts to become fully integrated.
