Taittinger Les Folies de Marquetterie comes from Taittinger's own vineyards, around historic Château de la Marquetterie. 45% Chardonnay, 55% Pinot Noir, aged for 5 years to give this superb wine creamy richness.
This cuvée is the story of the Taittinger house - the beginning of Taittinger's history. Grapes are sourced from Taittinger’s own vineyards including the superb grapes grown in ‘Les Folies’, surrounding the Château de la Marquetterie. A "green" harvest is carried out on the selected plots of vines to ensure the fruit offers optimum sweetness and aromatic maturity. Only wines from the first pressing are used and defined lots are vinified in small volumes lot by lot, with certain lots of Chardonnay vinified in large oak casks to give added weight and creaminess. Folies de la Marquetterie is a blend of 45% Chardonnay and 55% Pinot Noir. Slow ageing for 5 years in bottle brings the flavours of this Champagne to perfect harmony. This wine is made to be a creamier style, making it particularly suited to food pairing. Deep yellow with golden highlights and fine, delicate bubbles. It has an intense, fruity bouquet with aromas of peaches, apricot jam and subtle hints of toasted brioche and vanilla. On the palate is it full-bodied, fruity and graceful with golden peach flavours. The long finish is distinctive with light toasty notes. All in all Folies de la Marquetterie is a full flavoured, harmonious Champagne distinguished by its immense richness and complexity. Besides being an ideal aperitif it is a perfect accompaniment to fish and chicken dishes.
