Kicking off Passover night two with some bubbles. We may not be allowed to eat leavened things, but this sure smells yeasty. A generous backdrop of applesauce, cold pears, and salt. A wonderful Brut NV.

Always a good drink. Crisp acidity, baked apple, and melon. Taittinger is a heavy chardonnay style and it always shows in how clean and sharp the wines are (especially the comtes), but the blended wines in the NV add a nice roundness on the finish.

Toast, brioche, sprite, Granny Smith Apple, bright acid, hint of minerality and almonds on the finish. Happy new year.

Light citrus & fresh raspberry spread on toasted sourdough is the best description I can possibly offer. This is such a value bottle, everyone should buy and experience, around $45 ($40 is what we paid) in most areas. Terribly consistent on every bottle.

(My best friend ended up with daughters after this bottle, so be warned on side benefits of copulation.)

Although this one is only 40% Chardonnay, Chardonnay dominates the nose with pears, apples, yeast and lemons. There are background hints from red fruit but the white predominates. The finish is very citrusy and acidic: out of balance. For my taste the wine wants more dosage: Brut la Française is too sour for me.
