Taittinger Brut Vintage 2015

A deep and complex Champagne from Taittinger.

The Taittinger family has managed the Champagne House for nearly a century. Its aim has always been the pursuit of excellence. The Champagne House only creates a ‘cuvée millésime’ when the grape harvest is of an outstanding quality.

Several years of maturing in the cellars will then be needed to ensure that the aromas slowly mature and develop the wine’s complexity and long-lasting character. Their vintages are made wholeheartedly with the discerning Champagne connoisseur in mind.

On the palate, it releases superb energy; a fresh and dynamic attack with floral tones such as honeysuckle combined with delightful notes of peach and citrus fruits. The finish is subtle with lovely long-lasting aromas on top of pleasingly bitter orange peel.

There is a charming complementarity between the elegance of the chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs and the broader shoulders of the Pinots Noirs from the Montagne de Reims. It is the perfect combination of terroir, year, climate and their house style, all made from an equal balance of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Tivoli Wine Customer Reviews



Hailing from northern France, Champagne is the most iconic sparkling wine in the world. Producing both white and rosé wines, Champagne is typically a blend of three varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

To achieve a consistent house-style, many Champagnes are a blend of base wines from several vintages, referred to as non-vintage. These have been aged for a minimum of 15 months before release and are typically dry with high acidity, notes of apple and light toast/brioche flavours.

Vintage Champagnes are made in exceptional years, and these are aged for a minimum of 36 months. These wines typically have pronounced apple, citrus and biscuit flavours. Special Cuvée Champagnes often are aged for much longer, developing complex, nutty, honeyed notes.



France – the home of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne – is arguably the world's most important wine-producing country. For centuries, it has produced wine in greater quantity – and many would say quality – than any other nation, and its attraction is not just volume or prestige, but also the variety of styles available. 

The diversity of French wine is due, in part, to the country's wide range of climates. Champagne, its most northerly region, has one of the coolest climates, whereas Bordeaux has a maritime climate, heavily influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and the various rivers that wind their way between vineyards. Both in stark contrast to the southern regions of Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon, which enjoy a Mediterranean climate, characterized by hot summers and mild winters.

Terroir is also key. From the granite hills of Beaujolais to the famous chalky slopes of Chablis and the gravels of the Médoc, the sites and soils on which France's vineyards have been developed are considered of vital importance and are at the heart of the concept of terroir.
