“TAITTINGER” – Different styles of the Champagne house TaittingerMarch 10, 2019 | 12:00 pm
Brut La Francaise Brut La Française is based on 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier. This wine has a subtle, pale gold color with fine, persistent bubbles. It is delicate, with aromas of peach, white flowers, vanilla pod, and brioche on the nose and flavors of fresh fruit and honey on the palate.
Prestige Rose Taittinger Cuvée Prestige Rosé is a vibrant pink color with fine bubbles and persistent foam. The full and wonderfully expressive nose delivers aromas of crushed raspberries, cherries and black currants that lead into crisp, fresh red fruit flavors on the palate. Velvety and full-bodied, this wine is lively, fruity and fresh.
Nocturne Demi Sec This distinctively sweet “sec” Champagne (with 18 g/l residual sugar) is pale yellow in color with shimmering highlights and bubbles that form a delicate ring of fine foam. On the nose there are aromas of white flowers, yellow peach and dried apricots. The palate is smooth and creamy yet very crisp and gives way to flavors of raisins and fruit in syrup. This mature, rich and round wine culminates in a long, smooth finish.
Brut Mellesime Fine, crisp and fresh, with aromas associated with citrus, yellow grapefruit and priest’s pear. The mouth is fine, chiseled, very bright & fresh, with a lot of precision. The wine offers a nice balance between structure and finesse. The finish is complex, elegant and long.
