Taittinger Vintage 2015
White Brut Champagne
RRP - £82.00 - you save £17.00
A vivacious, fresh nose offers aromas of hawthorn, grapefruit, and pear, underpinned by a light minerality and smokiness that is exclusive to the 2015 vintage. The palate is crisp and wonderfully precise. Marked by citrus fruit, it offers an excellent balance of structure and finesse. The complex finish is elegant and long.
2015 was a atypical harvest and, as it turns out, a promising one. Favourable weather conditions led the CIVC to forecast an early start to the harvests. The particularly hot, dry summer resulted in some irregularity in the picking times in different areas. At Taittinger, the harvest began on 4 September in the vineyards in teh Aube, a week before those in teh Marne.
Ageing in the cellars for 5 years helps it to flourish.
Enjoy it with fish/shellfish, pizza/pasta, salads, and mature strong cheeses.
