Vineyard
The Château de la Marquetterie is situated in the heart of the
Champagne wine-growing region in Pierry near Epernay and
is owned by Champagne Taittinger. Prior to the French
Revolution it was a meeting place for philosophers and
authors of the 'Age of Enlightenment' and a site for village
fairs. The vineyard around the Château de la Marquetterie is
known as "Les Folies" and is a sunny south, southwest
exposed vineyard, this combined with its soils produce
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes of exceptional quality.
Winemaking
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 particulary suited to food pairing.
