WineScores' Review

Luxurious, generous, creamy.
The close-knit Taittinger family has managed this Champagne House for nearly a century, always with the pursuit of excellence. Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger shares the company with his son Clovis and daughter Vitalie.
Maison Taittinger is located right in Reims.
The Brut Reserve, a classic and the most recognized of the brand (85% of their 7 million bottles is this wine) is a blend of 40% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and the remainder, Pinot Meunier. The grapes are sourced from 36 vineyards in Champagne, half estate and it spent a minimum of three years on lees with a 6g/L dosage.
It is a luxurious fizz with a rich colour and persistent bead, which offers lemon brioche, toasted nuts, baked apples and tangy summer berries. Great structure and style overall with a generous mousse, lively acidity and warm toastiness to give it weight and depth. Silky and creamy with a wonderful lively and lengthy grapefruity finish.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
