Taittinger Brut Millésimé 1998 Champagne

Taittinger only makes a vintage champagne when the harvest has been of such outstanding quality that it deserves to be fully vinified. The wine is then only marketed after several years of ageing in the cellars, allowing the aromas to mature slowly and the length and complexity of the wine to develop.


1998 Taittinger Brut Millésimé is composed of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. The Chardonnay grapes are mostly from the grands crus of the Côte des Blancs and the Pinot Noir grapes are from the crus of the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne.

These origins combined with the exclusive use of first pressing juices are necessary elements for great aromatic finesse and a long storage time.

TASTING

1998 Taittinger Brut Millésimé is pale gold in colour and has a rich effervescence which forms a very dense necklace of mousse.


It has a very fine nose and a good intensity of fragrance. The initial perfumes of white flowers give way to a fruity dominance with a subtle mineral touch. The scent of citrus fruits can also be discerned, with sugared grapefruit and a hint of baked crusty bread.

The first sip is sharp, delicate and complex, with the taste of fresh citrus fruit. It is well-rounded, full and richly constituted with an attractive effervescence.

The finish is long and fresh.

In conclusion, it is a champagne of extreme freshness, fine balance, keen intensity and consummate aromatic harmony.

A wine of charm and passion.
