Taittinger launches limited edition bottle as the offical Champagne of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™
As the official champagne of the 2018 FIFA World Cup 2018™, Champagne Taittinger has released a limited-edition bottle of its Brut Réserve NV.
Celebrating Taittinger’s association with the famous tournament, the souvenir bottle is presented in an elegant blue and silver box with a cosmic design to reflect Russia’s achievements in space, combined with the classic Taittinger hologram hallmark. The bottle includes a striking silver label with the World Cup trophy featuring on the neck label. It will be available in the UK On and Off Trade from early spring through sole UK agents Hatch Mansfield, with an RRP of £42.85.
In 2016, Taittinger extended its partnership with FIFA for four more years making the company once again the Official Champagne of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ from 14th June until 15th July and of the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™ from 7th June to 7th July.
WINEMAKER NOTES: The Brut Réserve is renowned for its golden yellow colour with a consistent, fine, lingering mousse. The nose is light and delicate with hints of fruits and brioche. The palate is lean, but has considerable depth and elegance with a long fresh finish. There is no specific drinking occasion for the Brut Réserve. Its elegance and lightness give it the flexibility to be the Champagne for the moment but it is always an excellent aperitif.
VINEYARDS: The grapes for the Brut Réserve come from prime vineyards throughout Champagne, with approximately 50% coming from the Taittinger Estate. It is a carefully balanced blend of wines from more than 35 'crus'.
WINEMAKING: Produced each year from 95% first pressings of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay this is the definitive cuvée of Champagne Taittinger. It also includes a proportion of reserve wine to ensure consistency from year to year. Prior to release the Brut Réserve is aged for 3-4 years giving the wine depth whilst allowing the component parts to become fully integrated.
TASTING NOTES: Stylish and sophisticated Champagne with light citrus and brioche characters. Three years ageing in Taittinger's cellars adds a roundness and weight to this supremely elegant cuvée.
DELIVERY: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.
