Offering up aromas of pear, stone fruits, warm brioche, white flowers and iodine, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and incisive, with fine depth at the core, racy acids and a long, penetrating finish. Based on the 2013 vintage and sourced largely from Avize, Mesnil, Mailly and Verzenay, as I've written before, this is an excellent bottling that flies somewhat under the radar. - William Kelley

A tighter and firmer, dry Champagne with a compact, minerally palate. Lovely, fine and creamy bead. Soft and round mid-palate with lemon, lemon-curd and green-apple flavors. Fresh finish. Drink now.

There's a pleasing viscosity to this elegant Champagne, with sleek acidity creating a mouthwatering frame for the flavors of wild cherry, toast point, preserved lemon and honeycomb. Offers a lingering, creamy finish...   There's a pleasing viscosity to this elegant Champagne, with sleek acidity creating a mouthwatering frame for the flavors of wild cherry, toast point, preserved lemon and honeycomb.

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.
