Tattinger Brut La Francaise – 750ML

Sale!

Taittinger Brut La Française is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier wines from at least 35 villages. The high proportion of Chardonnay (40%) is unique among fine nonvintage Champagnes. The presses are located in the vineyard for immediate pressing of the fruit after the manual harvest, and the resulting must is cold fermented under temperature-controlled conditions. After resting until the end of winter, the wine is blended, and then the final cuvée undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle in Taittinger’s cool cellars. The aging of Brut La Française on the lees for almost 4 years more than doubles the legal minimum of 15 months. This extra time in the cellars allows the wine to reach the peak of aromatic maturity, and the result is a delicately balanced Champagne, known for its consistently excellent quality.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a subtle, pale gold color with fine, persistent bubbles. It is delicate, with aromas of peach, white flowers, vanilla pod, and brioche on the nose and flavors of fresh fruit and honey on the palate.

Serving Suggestion

Excellent with foods such as seafood and white meat.

Wine Advocate

90 points - Wine Advocate // The latest release of Taittinger's NV Brut La FranåÕ_aise 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 expressiveå_åÑåÓand would already make a lovely aperitifå_åÑåÓa few years on cork will be rewarded with more biscuity complexity. -William Kelley (April, 2019)
