The colour of the Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2006 is a pale radiant yellow with an abundant of fine bubbles rising to form a delicate persistent necklace. The first impression on the nose combines flintiness with yeasty bread aromas. This quickly gives way to a fine, intense, sweet fruitiness, of crystallized fruit scents of lemon and mandarin with a flowery touch of acacia honey.
On the palate, the fruity attack is sublimely fresh and rich. The mid-palate is balanced, structured and smooth, releasing flavours of sugared pink grapefruit.
The exceptional intensity of the finish is long, generous and complex.
Enjoy with Grilled & Roasted White Meats, Fish/Shellfish. Besides making an excellent aperitif, Taittinger Vintage has the depth and complexity to marry with creamy fish dishes such as Lobster Thermidor.
Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2006 is a blend of grapes exclusively from the first pressing.
It consists of 50% Chardonnay from the “Grands Crus” of the Côte des Blancs and 50% Pinot Noir from the “Grands Crus” of the Montagne de Reims and the start of the Vallée de la Marne.
Dosage - 9 g/l
Taittinger produces a Vintage Champagne only when the harvest has been of exceptional quality. Made from first press wines the wine is only released after several years of cellar ageing, allowing the aromas to mature slowly and the length and complexity of the wine to develop.
