Great wine for some homemade pizza. Delicious! — 8 days ago
Color of saturated purple, a bit bubbly and nice legs. Nose of sweet black cherry, spice, medicinal strawberry syrup, a bit oak, and a bit strength of alcohol. Taste follows the nose with addition of good solid tannins, definitely leaning on the sweet side, tinkling spicy, cherry jam, vanilla, and black pepper. Flavors are dense and mouthful. Aftertaste shows more sweetness and some bitter notes. Definitely a crowd pleaser. — 3 months ago

One of the best lagers I’ve had in a while. Tons of traditional flavors with an abv under 4! If you tire of ipa, then try this one. — 3 months ago
This wine has a pale lemon hue with a delicate mousse. 🥂 🍾
👃 On the nose, this wine has a medium intensity of bright and youthful aromas including primary notes of white peach, yellow apple, pear tart, lemon zest, white blossom, and wet stone; also secondary notes of yeast, pastry, brioche, and marcona almonds.
👄 On the palate this wine is dry (Brut), with crisp, medium(+) acidity, a light body, medium alcohol, and medium intensity of flavors consistent with the nose, but with a stronger citric focus. The finish is medium.
🤔 This wine has a high proportion of Chardonnay (40%) for a non-vintage (NV) Champagne; it also has Pinot Noir (35%) and Pinot Meunier (25%) 🍇 . It is delicate and light. This wine spent 3-4 years "on the lees." Aging "on the lees" or "sur lie" is a wine-making practice (legally mandated in Champagne!) leaving the wine in contact with dead yeast cells, a.k.a. yeast particles that were used up in the fermentation process. In Champagne, an NV wine must undergo a minimum of 15 months aging with at least 12 months "sur lie". Taittinger has exceeded these minimums, which undoubtedly contributed to the presence of yeasty, bready, doughy, toasty, pastry notes that typify Champagne. 😍😍
I love that this Champagne House remains owned and operated by the founding family (who also owns the beloved Domaine Carneros in California). 💕💕 Having a glass and you get a sense for the love and attention to quality, carrying on the family tradition of excellence, elegance, and finesse.
Did I mention @champagnetaittinger is now planting vines in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧, near a village (Chilham) in Kent? This English sparkling is expected to be on the market in 2023/2024.
Cheers to always innovating, but also staying true to your roots 🙌🙌 — 8 days ago
Really good, one of my favorites ever. Had it at roots steakhouse with Laura for 2 year anniversary. Starts almost like a pinot noir but better. Sweet but smooth, delicious and hydrating. But finishes dry almost like a merlot. Beautifully balanced — 2 months ago
