Champagne Taittinger only produces a vintage when the harvest is of exceptional quality. The bottles are fi rst aged in the cellars for several years – allowing the aromas to slowly mature and the wine to develop length and complexity – before they are ready to be enjoyed.
Taittinger Brut Millésimé is exclusively blended from first press wines. 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.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale yet radiant yellow colour. The clean effervescence gives off an abundance of bubbles rising to form a lingering ring of foam.
The first impression on the nose combines flintiness and yeasty bread aromas. This quickly gives way to a fine, intense, sweet fruitiness, as scents of crystallized lemon, mandarin fruit drops and a flowery touch of acacia honey emerge.
On the palate, the fruity entry is sublimely crisp and rich. The mid-palate is balanced, structured and smooth, releasing sugary pink grapefruit flavours.
The long, generous and complex finish is especially lively. Despite its youth, Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2005 already possesses a remarkable balance between finesse, elegance and delectability. Its immeasurable freshness suggests excellent ageing potential.
Ideal as an aperitif, this wine is also the ideal accompaniment to fish in sauce or white meats.
