Taittinger has the largest family-owned vineyards in Champagne. This wine is 40% chardonnay, and 60% pinot noir and pinot meunier – 30% of it from reserves. It matured on yeast lees for at least three years. Balance is key, in the white flowers/peaches of the bouquet and the honey and vanilla of the palate. 94 points. James Halliday.
