Always a delight, especially a 2x magnum. Clean and crisp, green tartness but smooth mellowed undertones.

Brioche on the nose, with green apple and soft oak accents on the palate. Tertiary notes of saline and mushrooms complicate what is an elegant package.

Taittinger’s house style is fresh and crisp. Chardonnay is always a highlight and it shows throughout the line. Clean and linear with fresh pear and a steely minerality. These would probably be good NV wines to hold for a few years.

Grabbed a bottle to close the Summer on Labor Day weekend. Blend of 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir this wine was rich and complex. Pale yellow, vibrant bubbles, Crisp fruit aromas, apples and pears. Palate shows generous mineral and toasty oak notes integrated with the fruit. Absolute a must on your list, a true house staple for me. Great Champagne value. Overall nice summer, a tad wet back east!

A very clean Brut with keenly balanced acidity, just a touch of sweetness lingers on the palate.

Photos of a hand painting of the original monks once inhabiting the property and a stunning architectural model in the visitor lobby.

This is a blend of 40 different crus and is the same as the Brit la franchise which is only called that in the US. This is a blend of all three grapes Chardonnay Pinot noir and meunière. A balanced and elegant. Style with a touch of almond and ginger spice. Smooth creamy texture on the tongue with fresh tree fruits apples pear and lemon zest on the finish. Excellent
