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.

Allow me to introduce you to the exquisite 9998 Taittinger Folies de la Marquetterie Champagne Blend. This exceptional wine hails from the renowned Champagne region of France, and it embodies the artistry and expertise of the esteemed Taittinger winery.

In the glass, this white wine shines with a radiant brilliance, captivating the eye with its golden hues. The nose is greeted with a tantalizing smoky brioche intensity, setting the stage for a truly enchanting experience. As the wine dances across the palate, layers of flavor unfold in a harmonious symphony. It begins with a luscious creaminess, reminiscent of lemon meringue, before revealing a vivacious acidity that invigorates the senses. This complexity and intensity are truly remarkable, showcasing the superb potential for further development.

Esteemed wine critics have also been captivated by the allure of this wine. Decanter, in their World Wine Awards 2020, bestowed a remarkable score of 97 upon this gem, praising its complexity and concentration. John Gilman, from View From The Cellar, awarded it a score of 92+, acknowledging its bright and youthful bouquet, refined mousse, and long, vibrant finish. James Suckling, from jamessuckling.com, described it as fruity and delicious, highlighting the aromas of frangipani, pie crust, raspberries, and peaches. Finally, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate issued a score of 94, commending its freshness, crisp stone fruit, buttered toast, and pillowy pinpoint mousse.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this wine is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay. The vins clairs used in its creation are barrel-fermented and aged for five years sur latte, resulting in a wine of exceptional depth and character. With an alcohol content of 12.5%, this Champagne is the epitome of elegance and finesse.

The 9998 Taittinger Folies de la Marquetterie is a wine that demands attention and admiration. Its remarkable complexity, vivacious acidity, and potential for further development make it a truly outstanding choice for any wine enthusiast. Whether enjoyed now or cellared for years to come, it promises a sensory journey that is nothing short of extraordinary.
