The body is deep yellow in colour with golden highlights. The bubbles are fine and delicate. The intense, highly fruity bouquet leads onto peach and apricot conserve aromas with subtle hints of toasted brioche and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied, smooth and fruit-driven with dominant stone-fruit flavours. The distinctive and expressive finish delivers subtle tones of oak. Les Folies de la Marquetterie is a full-flavoured and harmonious champagne distinguished by its immense richness and complexity.

The House’s very first “Champagne de Domaine”, Les Folies de la Marquetterie is a blend of chardonnay (45%) and pinot noir (55%), made exclusively from grapes grown at the Folies vineyard that overlooks Château de la Marquetterie, the birthplace of the Taittinger family champagne. A “green” harvest is carried out on the selected plots of vines to ensure the fruit offers optimum sweetness and aromatic maturity. After harvesting, only the juice from the first pressing is reserved. Each plot is vinified in small volumes and certain batches in oak casks. The bottles are aged for five years to bring this wine to complete harmony.

Champagne Taittinger is one of France's most celebrated champagne houses. As the epitome of French sophistication, style and grace, Champagne Taittinger celebrates the pleasures of life, believing that special moments are best enjoyed with fine champagne and great company. Revered by critics the world over and recognised as the champagne connoisseurs, Champagne Taittinger is renowned for creating wines of unmatched delicacy, elegance and finesse.
