The aromas are based around a delicate yeasty quality, but there is ripe apple fruit and even a hint of tropical fruit here, giving a rewarding complexity. On the palate the wine is rich and substantial but there is also considerable acidity. A perfect balance for a champagne. collapse

It has a nervy edge and is very mineral in texture, both characteristics typical of this vintage. At this early stage in its development, the wine holds the promise of long aging with its intense acidity and attractive texture. Drink this Champagne from 2023. collapse

Very attractive grapefruit, white-peach and gently flinty, reductive aromas with a red-fruit edge. The palate has a smooth array of flavors in the same vein with bright, gently bready notes added to the finish. Drink or hold.

The wine is quite refined on the nose, wafting from the glass in a precise and classy blend of white peach, apple, chalky minerality, bread dough and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and vibrant, with a good core, elegant mousse, bright acids and fine focus and grip on the long and nascently complex finish. This is already quite tasty, but it is still a young wine and will offer more mid-palate generosity and complexity with some bottle age. Good juice. (Drink between 2018-2045) collapse

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.
