Taittinger 2009, Drapper 2008 & Roederer 2008

Kloppsand 19.5.2017





Champagne Taittinger 2009
Brioche, klassisk nese, med litt mye dosage. Den beste Taittinger smakt utenom toppcuvèen. Preget noe av årgangens løse og varme frukt. 86-88 poeng


Champagne Drappier Grande Sendrèe 2008
Flott duft med bedre syre og intensitet enn Taittinger. Grenser til kompleks, endel autolyse og epler. En kraftig champis som viser årgangens storhet. Flere trodde det var mye chardonnay her. Den beste Drappier smakt ? 90-92 poeng.

Champagne Roederer Blanc de Blancs 2008
Lukket og stram, uforløst og bittert sitronskall. Salt sjø, kalkaktig mineralitet med mørkere tone av kaffe i avslutningen. Klassisk champagne som må lagres. 92-93 poeng

  The 2008 Blanc de Blancs offers a very subtle and substantial, multi-layered bouquet of wet chalk, hazelnuts, stewed apples, lemons, toast, jasmine. Full-bodied and vibrant, this is a highly elegant, very mineral, pure, fresh, firm, tense and persistent Champagne of great complexity. It is still very young but has a great aging potential.

  Chardonnay’s chamomile and meadow flower scents race out of this wine’s taut richness, its creaminess channeled along a chalk line of acidity. Clean and almost blunt in its youthful power, this wine has a terrific future ahead.   (12/2014)

  Tight with acidity and minerality, this is a precocious Champagne from a great vintage. Citrus and crisp apple flavors are allied to a strongly zesty character that brings out the chalk terroir of the Côte des Blancs in Champagne. Certainly the wine will age, so keep and drink from 2016.   (12/2014)
93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
  (100% estate-grown fruit; 9 g/l dosage): Light, bright gold. Vibrant, mineral-driven lemon and underripe pear on the nose, along with suggestions of honeysuckle, iodine, tarragon and toasted brioche. Gently leesy and creamy on the palate, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a suave touch of chamomile. Finishes bright and stony, with repeating floral and mineral notes.
