Champagne Taittinger Brut Reserve NV

Champagne, FranceSome classics are classics for a reason. This classic blends 40% chardonnay, 45% pinot noir, and the remainder pinot meunier from across 35 vineyards in the Marne, Sézanne and Aube, half of which come from estate vineyards. Around 30% reserve wines are used. After full MLF, this spent a minimum of 3 years on lees, before a dosage of 9 g/L. Rich and expansive, yet built around chardonnay's backbone, this NV carries red apple, green apple, Rainier cherry, lemon, almond, light toast across a streaming palate, bedded with chalk and studded with meringue. An accessible, smart NV for enjoying now with mixed company.Tasted: 14 November 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 69.99 BCLS ON 63.00 LCBO Producer: Champagne TaittingerDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
