A vivacious, fresh nose offers aromas of hawthorn, grapefruit and pear, underpinned by a light minerality and smokiness that is exclusive to the 2015 vintage. The palate is crisp and wonderfully precise. Marked by citrus fruit, it offers an excellent balance of structure and finesse. The complex finish is elegant and long.
All of Taittinger’s vineyards are managed under the careful eye of Christelle Rinvelle, Champagne Taittinger’s highly regarded vineyard manager. Taittinger manage their own vineyards with sustainability at the heart of every decision – putting hours of care into every individual vine.
An atypical harvest and, as it turns out, a promising one. Favourable weather conditions led the CIVC to forecast an early start to the harvests. The particularly hot, dry summer resulted in some irregularity in the picking times in different areas. At Taittinger, the harvest began on 4 September in the vineyards in teh Aube, a week before those in teh Marne.
The Taittinger Brut Vintage comprises only wines from the first press with a blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. A 5-year long ageing period in the cellars unlocks its full potential.
