If you want to experience the hype of vintage Champagne, without the wait, get around this. About Taittinger, founded in 1734 and sits on miles of chalk tunnels and cellars. These 4th century UNESCO listed cellars use to belong to the Benedictine monks of the abbey of St Nicaise and are a perfect environment for slow ageing Champagne. A feature of Taittinger is the favouring of Chardonnay in the wines.
2005 was a warm-weather year without complications. An early heatwave in June encouraged flowering, followed by moderate rainfall throughout summer and another heatwave in early September. The heat and rain developed berries rich in sugar and with high acidity levels, making 2005 a solid year for a vintage.
Taittinger produces vintage Champagne only when the harvest has been of exceptional quality. Their Brut Vintage is always a blend of juice exclusively from the first pressing of the grapes and is aged for four years in the cellars, allowing the aromas to mature slowly and the length and complexity of the wine to develop. It consists of Chardonnay from Grand Crus vineyards of Côte des Blancs and Pinot Noir from Grand Crus vineyards Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne.
