"Taittinger's NV Brut Reserve—a blend of more than 35 different vineyards, assembling 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, including 30% reserve wines—has a clear, fresh and vinous bouquet with Pinot Meunier flavors in front. Bottled in 2014 and disgorged in March 2017 with nine grams of dosage, this is a lithe and fresh but mouth-filling Brut with round and aromatic fruit. It tastes almost as charming as the Rosé Prestige yet less vinous and is rather lean and fresh. Tasted in November 2017."robertparker.com

Golden yellow with a consistent fine lingering mousse. Light and delicate aromas with hints of fruits and brioche. The lean palate has considerable depth and elegance with a long fresh finish. Perfect for any occasion, and an excellent aperitif.
