Tattinger Brut La Francaise Champagne review by Billy
Nose: Strong citrus of grapefruit and lemon curd on the nose with a nice under tone of crackers
Palate: delightfully spritely on the tongue with expert balance of dryness and structure.
Finish: Lime on the finish with a slight floral softness
Overall: a delightful citrussy Champagne for a reasonable price. I paid about $35 for this at a local wine shop. I prefer it over a more expensive but less character-driven Champagne like Veuve. It is easy drinking without being snobbish. If you love a citrus driven sparkling wine and have a reason to celebrate, pick up a bottle of Tattinger and raise a glass!
