RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Food Pairings for Taittinger Brut la Francaise
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 NV Brut La Francaise shows terrific precision and cut at this level, with gorgeous balance and a clean finish laced with the essence of minerals and smoke. The entry-level La Francaise reveals tons of Chardonnay character in a precise, steely style.
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.
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 thatandrsquo;s lightly toasty and hints at coconut and vanilla wafer.
The NV Brut La Franandccedil;aise is a pretty, mid-weight wine with good definition in its ripe peaches, flowers and sweet spices, and a refined, clean finish. This is an attractive, well-balanced NV Champagne to enjoy now and over the next few years. The blend is 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. This is Lot: L7146PK00100, disgorged April 10, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2010.
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 cuvandeacute;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. Itandrsquo;s like andldquo;drinking the stars.andrdquo; So letandrsquo;s lift our glasses and toast to the good times the holidays bring, we may never pass this way again.
91 points Wine Enthusiast: A rich Champagne, beautifully elegant, touched 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. (Dec 2009)
