Winemaker's Notes:

This Champagne is pale gold in the glass with fine, pinpoint bubbles. On the nose, aromas of white fruit and wild berries precede flavors of toast and yeast. Excellent minerality and refined acidity culminate in a lasting, full-bodied, round finish.

About Champagne Taittinger:

Champagne 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. Taittinger is today proprietor of approximately 600 acres of vines among which are included parcels in the one hundred - percent rated villages of Cramant and Avize in the Cote des Blancs; and Bouzy, Mailly, Ambonnay and Verzenay in the Montagne de Reims. The Taittinger Estate is one of the three most extensive in the Champagne district, and the firm's major holdings in Chardonnay vineyards are the physical expression of the Taittinger philosophy and style.
