Made from different Grand Cru parcels of Taittinger's own estate, it has been aged for several years in bottle before release. The result is a rich, toasty, impressive wine, rounded, still fruity but no longer just fresh. It's a wine to savor and will certainly go well with food. Drink now, or keep at least until 2020.
