Taittinger Champagne Brut La Francaise 750ml

Taittinger Champagne Brut La Francaise

90 Point Wine Spectator - "A mouthwatering version, with a fine, lacy mousse and delicate flavors of poached apple, blackberry, beeswax and lemon confit underscored by a streak of smoky minerality that echoes on the finish. Showing class and style, the nonvintage Taittinger Brut La Francaise Champagne offers stunning richness while exhibiting excellent overall balance. The winery notes, "(this wine) contains a higher proportion of the finer Chardonnay grape than other nonvintage Champagnes, giving elegance and freshness to the wine." They are absolutely on the money with their self-assessment. Active on the palate, with bright core fruits and zesty citrus and mineral flavors, a pairing with raw oysters would seem to be in order. Drink now through 2019.

An elegantly fresh and delicate Champagne blended from a high proportion of Chardonnay grapes to yield a refined flavor palette of pear and stone fruits offset by warm, yeasty notes and hints of breadcrust.

Champagne Taittinger was established in 1931 by Pierre Taittinger on the foundations of Forest-Forneaux, itself established in 1734 and the third-oldest wine producing house of Champagne. Taittinger is today proprietor of approximately 600 acres of vines among which are included parcels in the one hundred - percent rated villages of Cramant and Avize in the Cote des Blancs; and Bouzy, Mailly, Ambonnay and Verzenay in the Montagne de Reims. The Taittinger Estate is one of the three most extensive in the Champagne district, and the firm's major holdings in Chardonnay vineyards are the physical expression of the Taittinger philosophy and style.

Taittinger Champagne Brut La Francaise has a color of brilliant golden-straw yellow. The bubbles are fine, and the mousse is both discreet and persistent. The nose, very expressive and open, is both fruity and bready. It exudes aromas of peach, white flowers, and vanilla pod. On the palate this lively fresh wine is at once in harmony. This is a delicate wine with flavors of fresh fruit and honey.

Taittinger Brut Reserve is a blend of Chardonnay wines (40%) and Pinot wines (60%) from 40 different vineyards and matured to perfection. Such a high proportion of Chardonnay is seldom found among the great champagnes.

It can be drunk as an aperitif or with food, preferably with an evening meal.It is a perfect accompaniment to white meat (lamb with chanterelles), crayfish or mushroom quiche
