The Oddbins Take

The Taittinger house style is crisp and elegant, with a creamy richness that's emphasised in the 2008 vintage with its 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and selective ageing. The 2008 is just coming into its own now - still young and fresh, with clean, bright fruit flavours balanced by the nutty, toasty notes coming through - and will continue to develop and mature for a good decade, and more.

    If it were a singer, it would be Pavarotti (RIP), put it that way. The Champagne is perfect for laying down for an important date or, if they’re feeling particularly jubilant, just popping open to celebrate the miracle of Life, while this Bordeaux is at the perfect age to be uncorked and devoured, ideally with a tender piece of chateaubriand.

    Between you and us, this is our favourite gift. Partly because Taittinger, and especially vintage Taittinger, is unutterably wonderful. And partly because of the implicit suggestion of two celebrations - a fabulous one, and an utterly fabulous one. Maybe one now (say... wedding), and one in the future (say... wedding anniversary). Or maybe one now. And one tomorrow.
