The latest release of Taittinger's NV Brut La Française is showing well, offering up notes of ripe citrus, yellow apple, brioche, honeycomb and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and charming, with bright acids, a generous core of fruit and a brisk mousse. While the wine is already wide open and expressive—and would already make a lovely aperitif—a few years on cork will be rewarded with more biscuity complexity. (WK)
Smoke and toast accents lace crushed raspberry, candied lemon zest and apple blossom notes in this firm, aperitif-style Champagne. Lively. (AN, Web-2016)
Notes of yeast, baked bread, petrol and citrus serve as a slightly muted introduction to the rounded, delicious and reasonably complex flavors where the citrus elements telegraphed by the nose reappear on the moderately dry finish.
(roughly 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier; 9 g/l dosage; L3348NA09100): Light gold. Poached pear, peach, orange and honey on the fruity nose. Broad and fleshy on entry, then tighter and more tangy in the mid-palate, offering juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors with subtle ginger and toasted grain nuances. Shows a supple, round character on the finish, with the ginger and peach notes repeating. Note that this bottling is labelled as "Reserve" for every country aside from the United States. In fact, I tasted a bottle labeled as such here in New York this fall, from Lot L3348NA9200. How it wound up here, I've no idea. (JR)
Broad and leesy, this wine’s flavors layer that autolytic character with scents of lemongrass, green fig and pineapple. A creamy, ripe style, this finishes open and clean.
A blend of the three main Champagne grapes from vineyards in 35 villages, this is light and fruity, with some bottle age giving it a hint of toast. White fruits and acidity add crispness to this well-balanced wine. (RV)
