'The latest release of Taittinger's NV Brut Folies de la Marquetterie is showing superbly, bursting from the glass with aromas of fresh bread, crisp stone fruit, buttered toast, citrus oil and mirabelle plums. Full-bodied, vinous and fleshy, with an enveloping core of fruit, racy acids and a pillowy pinpoint mousse, it's a gourmand, concentrated wine with the substance to evolve with grace in the cellar. Drink 2021-2038.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 94/100 (Sep 2021)

'This special cuvée comes from the vineyards surrounding the Château de la Marquetterie in Reims. With a part aged in wood, the wine has fine bottle aging and toastiness giving it richness as well as bringing out the ripe lemon and red-apple flavors. It is a beautifully balanced wine that is ready to drink.' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 94/100 (Editors' Choice) (Dec 2017)

'Petrichor, wet stone and floral nose. Pineapple, lemon, quince and pleasing red fruit characters follow on the palate. Very good!' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 90/100 (Silver)

'A firm and toasty version, with smoke and nut notes layered with juicy melon and white cherry fruit flavors that ride the lively bead. Offers a crunchy, mineral-laced finish. Drink now.' – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 90/100 (Nov 2019)

'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 jam aromas with subtle hints of toasted brioche and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied, smooth and fruity with dominant peach flavours. The distinctive and expressive finish delivers lightly woody notes. Les Folies de la Marquetterie is a full-flavoured and harmonious champagne distinguished by its immense richness and complexity.' – Taittinger

Producer information Taittinger dates back to 1734 when the first owner worked with Benedictine monks to learn how to produce sparkling wine. It was only later, in 1932, that Pierre Taittinger acquired the estate and relaunched it under his family name. Taittinger is one of Champagne's largest producers and is part of the Union des Maisons de Champagne, a syndicate of Champagne houses that includes the likes of Bollinger, Laurent Perrier, Moët & Chandon, and Louis Roederer. Taittinger owns four kilometers of chalk caves (originally dug out by the Romans) and is only one of five Champagne houses who uses them for cellaring.
