Winery notes (2012 Vintage)
"Brut Millésime 2012 is a fine, delicate, airy, elegant champagne that presents a beautiful balance of aromatic intensity and freshness. The nose is defined by intense citrus fruit aromas of mandarin zest. Next emerges floral and delicate aromas of lime flowers. In the mouth, the attack is full of freshness and strength, dominated by the citrus fruits. There then follows a certain fullness, with flavors of pear and raisins, with a complex finish embellished with notes of licorice.

This champagne pairs particularly well with white fish seasoned with a delicately creamy sauce."


95/100 Wine Enthusiast (2012 Vintage)
"Made from equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this still young Champagne is rich in the Taittinger style, with an elegant poise that is impressive. The wine, with its apricot and ripe apple fruit, is generously tempered by bright acidity and a crisp edge."


94/100 James Suckling (2012 Vintage)
"With appealing vibrant lemon cream and peach custard on the nose, chardonnay is really working its magic here. The palate has attractive grilled peach and lemon curd flavors, as well as grapefruit. Terrific smooth texture and a refreshing, lightly toasty finish. Superb drinking now."


92/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, November 2017 (2012 Vintage)
"Taittinger's 2012 Millésime Brut is a stainless steel-fermented blend of 50% Côte ded Blancs Chardonnay and 50% Montagne de Reims Pinot Noir bottled in 2013. It offers a clear and elegant, intensely aromatic and fruity bouquet of sweet cherries along with hazelnut and some incense flavors. It is a round, intense and well-structured yet fine Champagne with ripe and almost juicy fruit and a tight, still restrained finish. A bit sweet for my nordic taste, but this is a mouthful of Brut. Disgorged with nine grams of dosage in January 2017."
