Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rose (2006)

New

On the nose this champagne has bursts of strawberries, morello cherries and blackcurrants. On the palate it is very expressive with more blackcurrant flavour and a hint of pear. The mid-palate contains a tannin tartness that leads to a magnificent finish that lingers. Ideal for fruit desserts.

    Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé is a prestige cuvée made entirely from grapes sourced from the best vines in the prestigious Côte des Blancs and Montage de Reims regions. It is only produced when the harvest is of exceptional quality worthy of a vintage year. Winemaking methods involve strictly using just the first press juice and ageing 5% of the wines for four months in new oak barrels - a third of which are renewed every year - to enhance the intrinsic qualities and complexities of the final blend. The Pinot Noir grapes, 15% of which are made into red wine, originate from the famous vineyards of Bouzy. Presented in 18th century antique style bottles, this hand-crafted champagne is aged eighteen metres underground in the UNESCO status Saint-Nicaise cellars in Reims for a minimum of eight years before being released.
