Taittinger Brut La Francais Gift Set with 2 Champagne Flutes
|Region||France, Champagne, Reims|
Wine AdvocateThe latest release of Taittinger's NV Brut La Française is showing well, offering up notes of ripe citrus, yellow apple, brioche, honeycomb and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and charming, with bright acids, a generous core of fruit and a brisk mousse. While the wine is already wide open and expressive-and would already make a lovely aperitif-a few years on cork will be rewarded with more biscuity complexity.
Wine SpectatorSmoke-tinged toasted brioche and kumquat notes are layered with crunchy white peach and candied ginger flavors in this lively, aperitif-style Champagne. Crisp finish. Drink now.
Wine EnthusiastThis ripe wine is balanced with some fine bottle aging. That gives both a toasty aroma and some yeasty flavors on the palate. The wine is packed with citrus and crisp white fruits-it's floral and immediately attractive. Drink this Champagne now.
