Taittinger Folies de la Marquetterie (93+JG) (750ML)
“Les Folies de la Marquetterie, made from the vineyard that surrounds the Château de la Marquetterie in Pierry, is the first single vineyard wine to be released by Taittinger. Pierry is premier cru-rated village located just to the southwest of Épernay, in one of the two small valleys tucked between the city and the official start of the Côte des Blancs. Not surprisingly, given its close proximity to the Côte des Blancs, the Les Folies de la Marquetterie relies significantly on chardonnay in its cépage, with the current release a blend of sixty-five percent chardonnay and thirty-five percent pinot noir. The wine first debuted in France in 2006, and has just now begun to reach the New York market. The current release is stellar, as it offers up a deep and complex nose of bread dough, pears, lemon zest, a great base of minerality and a delicate leesy topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very elegant, with very intense, delicate mousse, lovely focus and great length and grip on the impeccably balanced finish. Just a beautiful new bottling from Taittinger…93+.” - John Gilman A View from the Cellar Issue 23
