Description

All in all Folies de la Marquetterie is a full flavoured, harmonious Champagne distinguished by its immense richness and complexity. Besides being an ideal aperitif, it is a perfect accompaniment to fish and chicken dishes.

This cuvée is the story of the Taittinger house – the beginning of Taittinger’s history. Grapes are sourced from Taittinger’s own vineyards including the superb grapes grown in ‘Les Folies’, surrounding the Château de la Marquetterie. A “green” harvest is carried out on the selected plots of vines to ensure the fruit offers optimum sweetness and aromatic maturity. Only wines from the first pressing are used and defined lots are vinified in small volumes lot by lot, with certain lots of Chardonnay vinified in large oak casks to give added weight and creaminess. Folies de la Marquetterie is a blend of 45% Chardonnay and 55% Pinot Noir. Slow ageing for 5 years in bottle brings the flavours of this Champagne to perfect harmony. This wine is made to be a creamier style, making it particularly suited to food pairing.

I popped into the Surrey Wine Cellar to get a present for some friends who are heavily into their real ales which I was aware, despite the name, that the Cellar stocked. Paul (owner) was so helpful explaining to me where the beers were made (all local) and his thoughts on each one. My friends absolutely loved them and I shall definitely be restocking very soon! Thank you!
