In the mouth it begins with cream, moving on to lemon meringue, then opens up further to lively acidity. Very complex, intense and concentrated. Superb potential to develop further.

Full-bodied, vinous and fleshy, with an enveloping core of fruit, racy acids and a pillowy pinpoint mousse, it's a gourmand, concentrated wine with the substance to evolve with grace in the cellar. - William Kelley

The...   92+ Taittinger’s les Folies de la Marquetterie is their single vineyard bottling, made from the steep vineyards that surround their Château de la Marquetterie in the village of Pierry. It was first produced in 2002. The current release is composed of a blend of fifty-five percent pinot noir and forty-five percent chardonnay, with a portion of the vins clairs now barrel-fermented and raised in casks. It is aged for five years sur latte prior to disgorgement. The current release offers up a bright and youthful bouquet of white peach, patissière, chalky soil tones, a hint of the passion fruit to come with bottle age, dried flowers and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and zesty, with a lovely core, good soil signature, refined mousse and a long, complex and vibrant finish. This is still a fairly young wine and I would opt to tuck it away in the cellar for three to five years before drinking it in earnest, as it should blossom beautifully with a bit of bottle age.

Taittinger

In 1932, Pierre Taittinger, captivated by the Champagne region and by Chateau de la Marquetterie, developed a champagne business with his brother-in-law Paul Eveque. His son Francois took the torch 13 years later, making improvements to both the cellars and the vineyards. Step by step, he established the Taittinger brand as one of the great Champagne houses, known for its Chardonnay-dominant cuvees and in particular, the prestigious Comtes de Champagne.

Taittinger was sold to US investment group Starwood in 2005, but was bought back by the family a year later. Today, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger has built a team to embark on a new adventure in the spirit of conquest and continuity, including the production of sparkling wine in the English region of Kent.
