Taittinger "Les Folies de la Marquetterie" Brut Champagne

SKU #1094255 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This special cuvée comes from the vineyards surrounding the Château de la Marquetterie in Reims. With a part aged in wood, the wine has fine bottle aging and toastiness giving it richness as well as bringing out the ripe lemon and red-apple flavors. It is a beautifully balanced wine that is ready to drink. *Editors' Choice* (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The rare NV Folies de la Marquetterie Brut has clear, fresh and subtle yet intense and super noble bouquet of fresh Pinot Noir fruit (50%) paired with the freshness and finesse of Chardonnay (50%). It is a full-bodied, round, intense and creamy textured Brut with a serious, persistent structure and the purity, finesse and elegance of Taittinger. The base wines were partly fermented in oak (30%), and malolactic fermentation was not prevented. This beautifully vinous sample was bottled in 2013 and was disgorged in January 2017 with a dosage of nine grams per liter. A great, refined and perfectly balanced Champagne with good length for a still pretty reasonable price. Tasted in November 2017. (SR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Raspberry, floral and spice notes are ripe and fragrant in this graceful Champagne, which shows a fine backbone of vibrant acidity and a delicate mousse. Hints of saline, graphite and lemon peel linger on the finish. Lovely. Drink now through 2022. (AN) Inner quote mark (11/2017)
