- "Taittinger's 2012 Millésime Brut is a stainless steel-fermented blend of 50% Côte de 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. Tasted in November 2017."
