Taittinger Cuvee Prestige, Brut Champagne
The brilliant body is golden yellow in colour. The bubbles are fine, while the bubbles are discreet yet lingering. The nose, very open and expressive, delivers aromas of fruit and brioche. It also gives off the fragrance of peach, white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) and vanilla pod. The entry onto the palate is lively, fresh and in total harmony. This is a delicate wine with flavours of fresh fruit and honey. Taittinger Brut Réserve, which acquires its maturity during three and four years ageing in the cellar, offers excellent aromatic potential.
"An appealing purity and a fresh citrus fruit taste, along with a gently toasty character from more than three years ageing in contact with the wine’s lees. It is quite a full, creamy style of Champagne, but with a squeaky clean, bright finish, making it an excellent all-rounder in the competitive world of Brut NV Champagnes." The Drinks Business

Champagne Taittinger's origins date back to 1734 with the founding of the original House by Jacques Fourneaux. The Taittinger link was established in 1931 when Pierre Taittinger acquired the House. He was stationed at the Château de la Marquetterie when serving in the 1st World War and fell in love with the property and its vineyards and eventually purchased the company. Today, the Reims based House is one of the few key Champagne houses to remain owned and actively managed by the family named on the label.
