Vinified from the first pressings of selected Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. Matured on its lees for three years, the wine contains 40% Chardonnay, on average twice the percentage found in most standard cuvees. The Brut Reserve is dry, light and elegant with fine, pale gold bubbles, subtle body and citrus, peach and brioche notes on the nose. L&S (Sept 2009)

40 % Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot. Regional blend. Base vintage unknown – current release as of November 2022. Clean, with some lime and cream notes and a gentle fresh nut weight, zesty and slightly pithy with solid balance and refreshment value. A nice shot of the slightly savoury reductive character that Taittinger injects into its cuvées, even at the entry level. Tom Hewson Rating: 90 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Dec 2022)

Tasted blind. Overall score placed it fourth out of 12 wines. Light straw. Sweetish nose – one of the few! Candied violets on the nose. Light and off dry. Quite chunky, lime-marmalade impression. Not much undertow. Good texture and refreshment value on the finish. A little chew on the end. Lots of acidity underneath.

This smells nutty with a touch of honey, as if there’s some older reserve wine added to the latest vintage; and it’s deliciously, seductively full-bodied and rich on the palate, full-flavoured too with a seductive creamy textured mousse, lots of melt-in-the-mouth yeasty complexity and undertones of honey and nuttiness.
