Taittinger Blanc de Blanc Brut 1995

Taittinger Blanc de Blanc Brut 750ML 1995     
Sku: 10828

Produced only in exceptional vintage years and intended as the ultimate expression of the Taittinger style, this wine is composed entirely of Chardonnay grapes grown in the top vineyards of the prestigious Cote des Blancs. Only the first press juice is used. A small proportion (5%) of the blend spends three to four months in new oak barrels, enhancing the intrinsic qualities of the final blend. Prior to disgorgement, the Blanc de Blancs is aged for 10 years on the lees in 13th-century chalk cellars that were once the property of Saint Nicaise abbey.

Tasting notes
Its colour is pale gold. Its bubbles are exceptionally fine and persistent, forming a delicate foam. Its discriminating bouquet has a hint of spice and lemon with a light plant or floral scent of mild tobacco and tea leaf. To the taste, this wine is very fresh, slightly acid and highly elegant. Its flavours are dominated by fresh citrus and lime. It has an end note of vanilla. In conclusion, this exceptional wine is extremely pleasant to drink with its complex and delicate aromas.

Wine maker notes
The climate was favourable for sustaining a good harvest of high quality worthy of the 1995 Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs. The Chardonnays are eulogistic and as in all great years, they will allow a long ageing.

Food pairing
A perfect accompaniment to first courses such as seafood and shellfish.
