Taittinger Brut Reserve NV

Champagne, FranceTaittinger has 300 hectares of vineyards across Champagne from which to choose fruit, giving it a wealth of grapes to work with each year. The multi-vintage blend is normally 40 percent chardonnay with 60 percent pinot noir and pinot meunier. The high percentage of chardonnay is the key to its finesse and elegant house style, a style that sets Taittinger apart from most of its competitors at this level. The nose opens with a whiff of smoke and toast over a rush of lemon, and white flowers which is offset with baked green apple and toast, across a creamy palate. It is simply an impressive brut Champagne you can count on year after year that sells for a very fair price.Tasted: 01 November 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 69.99 BCLS AB 59.75 select private retailers MB 69.41 Manitoba's Liquor Marts Online ON 65.40 LCBO QC 59.90 SAQ NS 85.00 select private retailers Producer: Champagne TaittingerDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
