Champagne Taittinger produces a vintage only when harvest is of exceptional quality.
Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2004 is a blend of grapes exclusively from the first pressing. The exclusive use of juices from the first pressing and their long ageing in the cellars help the aromas to spread and provide this fine wine with unique length, suppleness and complexity. A sublimely crisp and rich palate of pink grapefruit leads to a long, generous and complex finish.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale yet radiant golden.
The nose presents fine yet intense scents of lemon and mandarin fruit drops with a flowery touch of acacia honey.

This wine, ideal as an aperitif, is also a remarkable accompaniment to a meal, notably fish in sauce or white meat.
Champagne Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2004 is a blend of grapes exclusively from the first pressing. It consists of Chardonnay 50% and Pinot Noir 50% harvested mostly from the Grands Crus in Montagne de Reims and the borders of the Vallée de la Marne.
Vintage Conditions: Summer was dry until mid-August when a much needed period of rain commenced. The return of the sun and warmth at the beginning of September encouraged the fruit to ripen, leading to one of the most abundant Chardonnay harvests in the history of the Champagne region. The superb quality of the grapes led to balanced, complex and invigorating Chardonnay wine and elegant, well structured Pinot Noir wine.
