"Showing class and style, the nonvintage Taittinger Brut La Francaise Champagne offers stunning richness while exhibiting excellent overall balance. The winery notes, "(this wine) contains a higher proportion of the finer Chardonnay grape than other nonvintage Champagnes, giving elegance and freshness to the wine." They are absolutely on the money with their self-assessment. Active on the palate, with bright core fruits and zesty citrus and mineral flavors, a pairing with raw oysters would seem to be in order."

"Smoke and toast accents lace crushed raspberry, candied lemon zest and apple blossom notes in this firm, aperitif-style Champagne."

"The latest release of Taittinger's NV Brut La Française is showing very nicely, bursting with aromas of pear, crisp orchard fruit, peach, bee pollen and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and vibrant, with a youthfully frothy mousse and fine depth at the core, it's seamless and charming, with plenty of upfront appeal but also a decade's aging potential."
