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
Elegant, distinctive and impeccably crisp bouquet that suggests clove and mint. Stylish, concentrated and tightly focused, this is a classy fizz that extends gracefully through an immaculately clean finish.
…light yellow, has a delightful perfume of vanilla, spice and citrus. The lovely, creamy fruit, laced with spice, vanilla and citrus, is flavorful and delicious, with a long, crisp finish. The NV La Francaise seems to get better each year and it is again outstanding.
Pale golden hue. Impressively nutty, toasty, developed aromas. Concentrated and vibrant flavors on the attack with a medium body and a piercing, tautly-fruited finish.
An elegant Champagne that’s on the light side in body, but plenty of fruit and spice flavors hold your interest. It combines lemon, apple and vanilla notes for an attractive package.
Fruity aromas of apple, orange blossom, toast and nuts. Fat, ripe and suave; a medium-bodied, middle-of-the-road wine with a moderate dosage and a nice light touch. Finishes clean and persistent. An excellent non-vintage brut.
Creamy and leightweight, here’s a mellow Champagne, on the sweet side of brut, with citrus, peach and honey notes. Short finish, but a style that should have broad appeal. Drink now.
From a fine house, this bubbly has classic aromas of yeast and lime, with a hint of vanilla and coconut. In the mouth, it’s rich and full-bodied with delicate citrus flavors and good acidity, but very dry. It’s mostly notable for balance and harmony. An elegant, smooth wine with a good deal of complexity and finesse.
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)
