Sipping Fine Wine

Est. in 1987 and belongs to Champagne Taittinger (a personal favorite) considered the concept in 1947 in the mind of Claude Taittinger. The 138 acre estate is situated in the Carneros appellation of CA. A blend of 58% Chard & 42% Pinot Noir, crisp aromas of stone fruit and floral scents. Apple and pear flavors with citrus notes in a fine mousse with good bubble flow. Creamy texture, well structured, lingering finish ending with mineral tones. Will age well! The 2012 is a bit young now, but Time will reward!

Excellent California sparkler! It has aromas of toasted brioche, pear, biscuits, and wet stone. Great finish but I wished there were more and firmer bubbles. A bit pricey at $28 but worth it on occasion. Would age well.

A little too bubbly for our tastes. Still a solid bottle for our hotel room snack amenity.
