The Château de la Marquetterie is situated in the heart of the Champagne wine-growing region and 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. All in all “Les Folies de la Marquetterie” is a full flavoured, harmonious Champagne distinguished by its immense richness and complexity.

In the press...

Wines of the Month - Sparkler of the Month - 17.5/20 “The property from which this fruit is picked was allegedly a meeting place for philosophers prior to the French Revolution. It’s classy with understated finesse, graceful, creamy flower notes, lovely fruit intensity and a long finish. Drink now”

Champagne Taittinger's origins date back to 1734 with the founding of the original House by Jacques Fourneaux. The Taittinger link was established in 1931 when Pierre Taittinger acquired the House. He was stationed at the Château de la Marquetterie when serving in the 1st World War and fell in love with the property and its vineyards and eventually purchased the company. Today, the Reims based House remains owned and actively managed by the family named on the label.
