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. An ideal accompaniment to robust dishes such as roasts and fish in sauce.

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.

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.

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. 1,000 cases made.
