    Decanter

    A truly wonderful wine from the start but slow to develop in the glass this time. As usual, Taittinger succeeds very well in warm, acid-weak vintages, when neighbors' wines often appears flat and simplisitic. Despite the fact that the acidity is not particulary accenutated here either, the vineyards' aromatic citrus fresh touch leaves a fresh, uplifting side to the creamy, fat smoothness. The finish is certainly chalky and elegant , but it raises to heavenly heights with a 1976-like butterscotch soft, warm sweet flavored embracing pillow.

    With just a touch of bottle age giving a toasty character, this impressive wine is already showing some maturity. That said, the apple and citrus character, the mineral tight texture and crisp acidity promise some aging. The wine conveys a sense of elegance, intensity and richness. Drink now, but the wine will also age.
