Champagne Taittinger Le Folies de la Marquetterie

Le Folies de la Marquetterie is the first Taittinger champagne “de structure”. This term refers to a wine that expresses a certain hardiness and body. The blend is Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at 45 to 55%, the grapes are harvested in “green” to preserve the acidity, some lots are vinified in oak.
Just poured in the glass it is bright yellow with copper hues, the bubbles are of average size and number. The aromas are those of crusty bread, yeast, and marzipan. The palate is quite dense and with a good acidity. Prevailing tastes fruity, peach, pineapple, candied citrus peel.
Very long persistence of the wood where you feel something, but especially small pastry.
The combination is ideal for fish and meat dishes with intense flavors and spicy, but not too fat.
This champagne I liked for its great delicacy and charm. Personally though I would have preferred a more rustic and acidity, those who drank with me but he liked very much the way it is.
