Taittinger Champagne Brut la Francaise 2012
The subtle, pale gold color of Taittinger Brut La Francaise is punctuated by extremely fine, persistent bubbles rising to the surface in fragile strands. The fragrant berry and white fruit aromas, underscored by toasty, yeasty notes are confirmed on the ample, elegant palate which is strongly marked by refined Chardonnay fruit flavors. A fresh, balanced acidity sustains the whole, and carries into a long, crisp toasty finish of great delicacy.
External Reviews for Taittinger Champagne Brut la Francaise
Stylish and restrained. Toasty apple and acacia nose. Smooth, polished, integrated palate. Solid structure with good intensity, needs time.
Beautifully integrated aroma. Smooth and creamy in the mouth, rich with fruit, the fine effervescence carries the wine’s full flavors as if they were weightless. Dry, leesy length of flavor, with touches of complexity.
…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.
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.
Offers a lovely aroma of tropical fruit, vanilla, apple, citrus and spice. The similar flavors are elegant, creamy and finesseful, with lots of flavor, great fruit and a lingering finish — delicious.
Substantive, with a posh texture and ample fruit flavors accented by vanilla and almond on the lingering finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
A lean, focused style, with honey, hazelnut and brioche flavors on an elegant frame. Good lingering finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
