Champagne Taittinger vinifies Demi Sec Champagne from the classic Chardonnay (40%), Pinot Noir (30%) and Pinot Meunier (30%) grape varieties.
In the glass, this sparkling wine presents itself in an elegant straw yellow with a fine and persistent perlage. The aromatic bouquet reveals wonderful notes of ripe pears, fresh tropical fruits - especially mango and peach - as well as a fine hint of vanilla. The palate is pampered by the seductive residual sweetness and aromas of honey and brioche are added. The finish impresses with its length and a smooth, creamy character.
Vinification of Champagne Taittinger Demi Sec
The grapes for this wonderful sparkling wine come from different locations and vineyards in the Champagne cultivation area. The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand and the harvested material is immediately taken to the wine cellar. There, the grapes are gently pressed as a whole.
The musts are then fermented in a stainless steel tank. For the second fermentation, the base wine is bottled with the addition of the filling dosage (yeast and sugar) and matured in the wine cellar of Taittinger. Regular shaking and turning gradually collects the yeast, which was initially on the bottom, in the neck of the bottle.
Finally, this champagne is degorged. The yeast plug is frozen in the neck of the bottle and the bottle is opened. The shortage caused by opening is filled with a shipping dosage (sugar and wine).
