Taittinger Brut la Francaise NV
For the money I would say this is the best value . Full of bubbly effervescence
This a a great basic champagne. TASTING The color is brilliant, intense yellow. The bubbles are fine. The mousse is discreet and persistant enough. The nose, very expressive and open, is both fruity and with notes of fesh bread. It exudes aromas of peach, white flowers ( acacia) and vanilla. On the palate, this lively fresh wine is at once in harmony. This is a delicate wine with flavours of fresh fruit and honey. In all a wine blessed with a well-developed aromatic potential. It is aged for three to four years in the cellars where it achieves perfect maturity. The cellars are a must to see kilometers of (roman origin) caveau while visitng Reims.
External Reviews for Taittinger Brut la Francaise
The high proportion of Chardonnay is used in the blend gives this wine a crispness that is uncommon in non-vintage Champagnes. La Française sets the standard for lightness and delicacy among the Champagne houses.
A rich Champagne beautifully elegant toughed by yellow fruits apples and just the right amount of weight. There are final hints of toast spice and creamy coconut milk giving a Champagne that is as much about wine as about bubbles.
Balanced with a rich toasty character bright acidity and subtle notes of lemon curd cream quince paste and fleur de sel. Ends with a firm minerally finish. Drink now through 2015.
Pale straw in color with a fine bead. As always, this is an elegant, distinctive and impeccably crisp Champagne. It is the epitome of stylish; tightly focused, it gently unwraps itself into a graceful, immaculately clean finish thatrsquo;s lightly toasty and hints at coconut and vanilla wafer.
Pale yellow, with an energetic mousse. High-pitched floral and apple aromas are bright, accented by a refreshing note of mint. Yeasty and toasty in the mouth but ultimately a more delicate style, with fresh, sweet citrus and peach flavors. Finishes on a note of fresh bread, with a bit more weight than recent releases of this cuveacute;e.
What better way to celebrate than to pop a cork from a bottle of fine French Champagne. Full of life, this bubbling sparkler has a fine effervescence with creamy fruit that highlights smooth vanilla, pear, and spice notes and a crisp toasty finish. Itrsquo;s like ldquo;drinking the stars.rdquo; So letrsquo;s lift our glasses and toast to the good times the holidays bring, we may never pass this way again.
Beautifully integrated aroma. Smooth and creamy in the mouth, rich with fruit, the fine effervescence carries the winersquo;s full flavors as if they were weightless. Dry, leesy length of flavor, with touches of complexity.
