Taittinger Brut Millesime is produced from selected Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes grown in vineyards in several of the finest microclimates of the Champagne region. It is produced only in vintage years when the harvest yields fruit of excellence equal to Taittingerís rigorous standards of quality. The Chardonnay grapes are harvested from the Grands Crus of the Cote des Blancs and the Pinot Noir comes from the Grands Crus of Montagne de Reims and the edge of Vallee de la Marne. Following harvest, the grapes are pressed immediately in press houses located among the vineyards, yielding a first pressing which is the only juice used for this wine. At the winery, fermentation takes place under temperature-controlled conditions. Blending occurs after the primary fermentation, and thereafter the final cuvee undergoes the secondary fermentation in the bottle in Taittingerís cool cellars. Aged for five years on the lees, the wine acquires complexity and the fine, pinpoint bubbles characteristic of its sparkle.
Other text
The harvest began in the rain of mid-September, but the sun soon returned to save a bumper harvest and guarantee good maturity. The alcohol-acidity combination is original and rates among those of the best harvests. First tasting emphasizes straightforward, distinct and clean wines

Food pairing
Makes an ideal aperitif and is a versatile pairing with a wide variety of foods such as seafood and shellfish, lamb and veal, risottos and white sauces

Producer
Champagne Taittinger is one of the few remaining family owned and operated Champagne houses. The firm is distinguished for its extensive vineyard holdings of 752 acres, including prestigious Grand Cru vineyards in the Cote des Blancs and Montagne de Reims regions. Unlike most large houses, Champagne Taittinger relies primarily on estate grapes for its portfolio of Champagnes. Also unique are the higher proportion of Chardonnay in its wines that gives Taittinger its signature style, and the time devoted to aging the wines before releaseómost often greatly exceeding the legal requirement, in a practice that also has become a Taittinger hallmark.
