Wine Review: NV Taittinger La Francaise Brut Champagne Reims France

This cuvee of 35 different crus is the real deal. You would be hard pressed to find a better beverage for brunch at any price without moving up to small production grower Champagne. I mentioned brunch but this sparkler would work with almost anything. Hell I would have it with crispy cream donuts. That is if I ate crispy creams. The honey vanilla, fresh baked brioche aromas were tantalizing. The flavor parade brought out a citrusy yeasty flavor combination that was deliriously decadent and the perfect pairing with my bacon, mushroom, and Swiss cheese quiche. In addition, we served cold smoked Pacific Northwest salmon, a locally produced goat cheese and fresh Oregon berries. Combined with the conversation that comes with great company, it was the perfect Sunday morning.

Rating: Excellent (92) | $35 | 12.0% ABV
