Wine Enthusiast, December 2010
A wonderfully toasty yeasty wine with creamed apple fruits flavors that show some softness but never deviate from a crisp steely character. Although this wine is ready to drink consider keeping for 3-4 years. R.V.

Wine Spectator, November 2010
A toasty Champagne with an exotic hint of cumin spicing the wine and supporting flavors of clementine ginger bread and graphite. There's intensity and racy acidity all put together in a well-meshed elegant package. Drink...

Bright gold. Orchard fruit and citrus zest aromas are complicated by notes of honeysuckle baking spices and candied ginger. Juicy and focused on the palate with very good depth and clarity to its pear quince and orange... Bright gold. Orchard fruit and citrus zest aromas are complicated by notes of honeysuckle baking spices and candied ginger. Juicy and focused on the palate with very good depth and clarity to its pear quince and orange flavors. The spicy note builds with air and carries through a long sappy linear finish. The aging curve for this wine looks to be pretty long.

The estate’s 2004 Brut Millesime is a tense, wiry Champagne that needs at least several years in bottle to come together. The higher proportion of Chardonnay is felt in the wine’s cut and verve. A hint of crushed rocks... The estate’s 2004 Brut Millesime is a tense, wiry Champagne that needs at least several years in bottle to come together. The higher proportion of Chardonnay is felt in the wine’s cut and verve. A hint of crushed rocks lingers on the finish. With air the wine softens a touch and becomes richer on the plate, but another few years in bottle should be beneficial. This is Lot L8376MX00200, disgorged November/December, 2008 (not indicated on label). Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. - Antonio Galloni

Taittinger

In 1932, Pierre Taittinger, captivated by the Champagne region and by Chateau de la Marquetterie, developed a champagne business with his brother-in-law Paul Eveque. His son Francois took the torch 13 years later, making improvements to both the cellars and the vineyards. Step by step, he established the Taittinger brand as one of the great Champagne houses, known for its Chardonnay-dominant cuvees and in particular, the prestigious Comtes de Champagne.

Taittinger was sold to US investment group Starwood in 2005, but was bought back by the family a year later. Today, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger has built a team to embark on a new adventure in the spirit of conquest and continuity, including the production of sparkling wine in the English region of Kent.
