Taittinger – 16/01/2012

Brut Reserve
Quite pinot noir dominant, good autolysis yeast notes, excellent extension on the palate.

2011 Chouilly Grand Cru Chardonnay
Very delicate and refined nose, great acid balance, quite rich and full, very broad citrus.

2011 Mesnil-sur-Oger Chardonnay
Quite rich and developed, amazing watercress clementine, balanced and rich in depth, creamy malolactic influence, bright citric elegance.

2011 Pierry Chardonnay
Tight and fresh, more approachable, broader and softer, good fruit character.

2011 Sezanne Chardonnay
A significant contributor of acid in the assemblage.

2011 Montagne de Reims Pinot Noir
Dirtier earthy berries, fuller and more astringent, not a great component.
