The Taittinger Brut Reserve Magnum Champagne has a brilliant golden straw-yellow colour. The Champagne bubbles are fine. The mousse is both discreet and persistent. On the nose, very expressive and open. It is both fruity and bready, exuding aromas of peach, white flowers and vanilla pod. On the palate, this lively fresh wine is at once in harmony. This is a delicate wine with flavours of fresh fruit and honey. A sophisticated champagne in magnum size or 1.5L bottle.
Taittinger is able to rely primarily on its own grapes. Taittinger Brut Réserve is a blend of Chardonnay wines (40%) and Pinot wines (60%) from 40 different vineyards and matured to perfection. Such a high proportion of Chardonnay is seldom found among the great Champagnes.
The Taittinger Brut Reserve Magnum Champagne is a perfect accompaniment to lamb with chanterelles or crayfish or mushroom quiche.
