    September 24, 2022 - So this was beautiful, with richness on the nose and palate, lovely intensity of fruit, fine mousse, energetic acidity, but not strikingly so - that is, I've had plenty of 08s that are more acid driven than this wine, which instead comes across to me as balanced and rich, rather than linear and shrill. A wonderful tete de cuvee to hold that should develop harmoniously over the years. Right now, I'd rather drink the 06 or 07, but this showed marvelously tonight.

    September 24, 2022 - As good a young Taittinger as I've tasted, this sports a perfect balance of crisp acidity and depth of lemony fruit with excellent intensity and refinement. The finish is already complex with wonderful notes of yeasty bread and chalky minerals. Surprisingly drinkable already but this should develop along the lines of the '96 with perhaps better balance. 95+

    September 22, 2022 - Bright and fresh with lemon and sourdough notes, there is depth to the fruit but it is tight and much more linear than other champagnes I have had recently the same vintage (Cristal, Dom Rose, Krug). Will probably improve with time but I dont think it will reach the same heights

    September 17, 2022 - This bottle was slightly corked. We still finished the bottle. Interestingly, the restaurant sommelier preferred this tainted bottle over a splendid Dom Perignon 2010.
