Clovis Taittinger Interview - Champagne Taittinger
The classic Bordeaux blend from New Zealand? Can they do it?
Translucent and tinged with purple in colour, being only 2 years old, that’s what we’d expect. The nose is very bright red current and cherry fruits, attractive, easy drinking with roasted meats and veg.
There’s a soft tannin, an easy party wine that suits a broad range of chatting palate’s.
Definitely worth a try. New Zealand and Villa Maria in particular has a big fan base. Our opinion is that it is a crowd pleaser, as opposed to a connoisseur’s choice, but that is reflected in the price.
