A true icon from Champagne's oldest cellars, Taittinger Brut Réserve defines the Taittinger house style. It boasts a very expressive nose with beautiful aromas of peach and acacia with notes of citrus and brioche. On the palate, this wine is dry, delicate and elegant with the freshness of citrus alongside defined hints of honey. Stunning.

    CHAMPAGNE BLEND - Champagne Blend refers to one of the world's most distinctive wine styles – the sparkling wines made from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot-Meunier that are most famously associated with the Champagne region of northern France. The term, however, has come to evoke wines made in the “methode-traditionnelle” around the world. In the blend Pinot Noir adds structure and brings a certain berry-fruit nose to the blend, while the Chardonnay fleshes this out and sets the wine up for aging, particularly when the base wine is aged in oak.

    TAITTINGER was founded in 1734 and has played an important role in the political and economic life of France for several generations. Because it is a family business, and is one of the few remaining champagne houses run by people who bear its name, top quality and respect for tradition are constant priorities at Taittinger. Taittinger owns a total of 642 acres of vineyards, situated in some of the best regions of champagne, which allows its blends to achieve such consistency, complexity and high quality.
