Tasting notes: Candied Lemon, Hazelnut, Pastry, Vanilla
Taittinger was established in 1931 by Pierre Taittinger on the foundations of Forest-Forneaux, itself established in 1734 and the third-oldest wine producing house of Champagne. They are one of the last independent eponymous Champagne houses.
Produced only in exceptional vintage years and intended as the ultimate expression of the Taittinger style, this wine is composed entirely of Chardonnay grapes grown in the top vineyards of the prestigious Côte des Blancs. Only the first press juice is used.
This exceptional B de B is full-bodied, layered, structured, and complex with lacey texture and vibrant acidity that's seamlessly knit to the plush, silky mousse. Flavors of bright citrus, minerals, floral, nuts, pastries, baked apples, vanilla, pear and quince dance across the inviting palate. A good match for spicy Asian cuisine, roast chicken or shellfish or just all by itself.
