This great 2007 vintage lives up to all expectations as soon asyou open the bottle. It is a moment to treasure.

It has a fine and delicate nose which combineswhite blossom and a certain minerality with general overtonesof Anjou light pear and golden raisins. Subtle hints of aniseedand smoky flavors follow this suggestion of fruit. The tasteis vibrant, with a combination of lemon and saltiness. This isimmediately followed by a sensation of complex, yet mellowfreshness creating the perfect balance between ripeness anda full-rounded flavor. It is rounded off by a long-lasting, crispfinish with hints of salted butter. This elegant wine lives up to itsreputation with its freshness, strength, minerality and mellowfruitiness. Its freshness encapsulates a certain moment in timeand promises interesting cellaring potential.

ABOUT CHAMPAGNE TAITTINGER
Champagne Taittinger was established in 1931 by Pierre Taittinger on the foundations of Forest-Forneaux, itself established in 1734 and the third-oldest wine producing house of Champagne. Taittinger is today proprietor of approximately 600 acres of vines among which are included parcels in the one hundred - percent rated villages of Cramant and Avize in the Cote des Blancs; and Bouzy, Mailly, Ambonnay and Verzenay in the Montagne de Reims. The Taittinger Estate is one of the three most extensive in the Champagne district, and the firm's major holdings in Chardonnay vineyards are the physical expression of the Taittinger philosophy and style.
