Rich and toasty, yet elegant overall, this layers racy acidity with honeyed flavors of blackberry pâte de fruit, toasted brioche, candied kumquat and pastry cream, with a smoky, mineral-tinged finish. Disgorged October 2014. Drink now through 2020. Nov 2015, www.winespectator.com, Drink: 2015-2020

Taittinger's NV Folies de la Marquetterie Brut is a family-owned single vineyard blend of 60-70% Pinot Noir and 30-40% Chardonnay from stony soils in Pierry. The current release is based on 2009, was partly fermented in oak foudres (30%) and spent five to six years on the lees before disgorgement. Very fine and fresh on the nose, with intense stone fruit aromas along with nougat and mocha notes, this is a stunningly fresh and light-footed blend with an intense fruit and lingering minerality. It is a remarkable blend of complexity and tension with finesse and elegance. Jun 2016, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2016-2024

(55% pinot noir and 45% chardonnay, from a single vineyard in Pierry, due south of Epernay and near Cuis; L1202FC00100): Pale gold. Red berries, rose and orange peel on the fragrant, floral-accented nose and in the mouth. Sappy and broad, with very good depth and an energizing note of chalky minerals. Gains weight with air and finishes with excellent breadth, clarity and lingering mineral and honeysuckle notes. Dec 2012, www.vinous.com
