A traditional blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and one quarter of Pinot Meunier, the Taittinger La Francaise Brut Champagne expresses a fragrant nose of yellow flowers, peach, pear and a touch of lemon zest. Broad and fleshy, this well-balanced Champagne can be enjoyed with an array of dishes.
The NV Brut La Francaise is a pretty, accessible wine laced with white peaches, green pears and flowers. It is an attractive, mid-weight Champagne to drink now and over the next few years. This is Lot L1063NU01000, disgorged January 2011 (not indicated on label). Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
