Taittinger Les Folies de la Marquetterie Brut NV has taken out the top accolade in this year's Cuisine Champagne (over $100) tasting. Awarded five stars and 1st place in the annual competition, the reviewer writes:
"A single-vineyard wine of superb complexity and finesse, this Champagne is a full-bodied style with a nose of white stonefruits, citrus, linen sheets, a whiff of sulphide and a suggestion of barrel ageing. The wonderful flavours flow through a perfectly poised palate to an ultra-lingering, fragrant aftertaste."
Also receiving five stars in this year's competition was the Taittinger Prelude Grands Crus Brut NV and the Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut 2005.
