In the vineyard
In the Cellar
Taittinger's Brut Reserve NV is the cornerstone of their collection. Perfectly matured 40 % Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, from over 35 different vineyards produces a light, elegant and balanced champagne. Prelude is another Goedhuis favourite. Made solely from fruit grown in Grand Cru vineyards, it is the epitome of greatness and splendour, but with an extremely tempting price tag.
COMTES DE CHAMPAGNE
The jewel in Taittinger’s crown, released only in the best years. It is made with Chardonnay grapes from premium plots within the five Grands Crus villages of the Côtes des Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger, and aged for the best part of a decade in the Saint-Nicaise crayères. Highly collectable, it is one of the most enjoyable prestige cuvée Champagnes. Gorgeous in its youth but with the potential to age beautifully well over decades, and the release price remains determinedly reasonable.
