Brut Millésimé

An exceptional year

The Taittinger Champagne House only creates a ‘cuvée millésimée’ 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. Our vintages are made wholeheartedly with the discerning Champagne connoisseur in mind.

Brut Millésimé

2012 – ONE WORD :

The year 2012 was impacted by a set of climatic hazards: Winter frost, Spring, hail...

However, the conditions that allowed the grapes to ripen were exceptional in the months of August and September dry and sunny. The harvest, from 17 to 30 September, takes place under the best auspices, punctuated by a few particularly cold mornings. The profile of the crop suggests a great finesse. Taittinger Brut Vintage 2012, first press assembly exclusively consists of 70% of Grands crus and 30% of first crus. Tension and generosity characterize this vintage.
