Les Folies de la Marquetterie

Champagne Taittinger

Les Folies de la Marquetterie

Region: France / Champagne
Grapes: 45% Chardonnay, 55% Pinot Noir

This single-vineyard cuvée is produced exclusively from grapes grown at Les Folies, a Taittinger-owned vineyard with a south/southwest exposure in the heart of the Champagne winegrowing region. A green harvest ensures that the final harvest has optimum sweetness and aromatic maturity. Only wines from the first pressing are used and each plot is vinified in small volumes, with certain lots in large, old oak casks. Slow aging for five years in bottles brings the flavors of this Champagne to perfect harmony.

This deep golden Champagne has fine, delicate bubbles. On the nose, its intense, highly fruity aroma includes peaches and apricot jam with subtle toasted brioche and vanilla notes. It is full-bodied and fruity on the palate with golden peach flavors leading to a finish with light woody notes. This full-flavored, harmonious Champagne is distinguished by its immense richness and complexity.
