2014 Taittinger Brut Millesime Champagne
Sweet tobacco leaf on the nose with seductive honeysuckle undertones, lemongrass and fallen apples nuances. Approachable in the mouth with a firm pull of acidity. Drink 2021 - 2026.
Simon Field MW - Decanter (October 2021)
Lots of apple and lemon with biscuit and pie-crust character. Rich nose. Full-bodied with a big palate, showing lots of apple and vanilla. Round and layered texture. Flamboyant. Drink or hold.

The newly released 2014 Brut Millésimé from Taittinger is showing very well, offering up aromas of white peach, green apple, nougat and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, bright and incisive, with a charming core of fruit and a delicate mousse, this is a pretty, expressive vintage for Taittinger. Sufficiently open and fruit-driven to be enjoyed, toasty complexity with come with a few years on cork. Drink 2021 - 2035.
William Kelley - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (September 2020)
A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Grand and Premier Cru vineyards, this Champagne is impressively rich. Still young, its taut texture and minerality are imbued with elegance as well as freshness. This is a style of wine that can age for many years so, although it could be drunk now, it will improve at least until 2025.
Roger Voss - Wine Enthusiast
A vivacious Champagne, mouthwatering with tangy, citrus peel acidity and showing flavors of crunchy white peach, plum, toast and candied ginger riding the lively bead. Drink now through 2027.
Alison Napjus - The Wine Spectator (December 2020)
Impressive autolysis on the nose. A lot of lemony froth and then a clean, flattering, crisp, well put together palate. I’d guess the dosage is very slightly higher than average nowadays (yes, it’s 9 g/l apparently) but the balance is good. A sort of mini Comtes? Drink 2020 – 2025.
