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.
This cuvee is indeed only produced in exceptional years. It's medium to full-bodied,, structured, concentrated, and harmonious with depth, resonance, sleek acidity, and grippy tannins, The palate is racy and creamy passing along flavors of strawberry, raspberry, peach, brioche, rose petal, cinnamon, cherry and chalky minerality, It wraps up with a long, complex and utterly refined finish. It will enhance delicate white meat dishes as well as revealing its full potential when paired with lobster.
