The Unforgettable Vintage of '96

On tasting, its vivacity manifests itself through an exuberant display of citrus notes and toasted brioche, intertwined with crisp apple hints. The promising bouquet is an equally enchanting pleasure, offering characters of honeyed apricot, embellished with delicate whispers of meadowsweet flowers and brioche. The opulent mouthfeel and long finish position it as one of the most desirable blanc de blancs champagnes for aficionados.

Taittinger's distinct climatic conditions and laudable terroir are well-reflected in this masterpiece. Crafted entirely from Chardonnay sourced from Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, Taittinger has made the most out of its expansive range of vineyards to create a champagne that speaks volumes about their savoir-faire.
