Taittinger Rosé Champagne, France, NV (375ml 1/2 bottles) (ROSE)
Overview of the Wine
The Taittinger family has managed the Champagne House for nearly a century. Its aim has always been the pursuit of excellence. “Having our family name on a bottle places demands and responsibilities on every minute. The name on the bottle conveys both the skills and knowledge of the past and a commitment to the future”. Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger has embodied this commitment for 40 years, and today he shares it with his son, Clovis and his daughter, Vitalie who both work beside him in the day to day running of the Champagne House. Together, they create a very close-knit and complementary family trio.
Taittinger Prestige Rose immediately stands out for its intense, shimmering hue whose secret lies in the fact that it is a blend, which is more complex and costly to produce. A quantity of still red wine (15%) produced from the best Pinot Noirs from Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys is added to the final blend, to give this cuvée its unmistakable color and vibrant intensity on the palate. The high proportion of Chardonnay (30%) that completes the blend brings the elegance and delicacy that underpin Taittinger's signature style.

Taittinger Brut Prestige Rose Champagne NV Half Bottle is brilliant, pink shimmering and intense. With fine bubbles, this Rosé is intense, both fresh and young with aromas of red fruit (freshly crushed wild raspberry, cherry and blackcurrant). On the palate, this wine strikes a fine balance of velvety and full-bodied. The flavors are reminiscent of fresh, crisp red fruits. The palate can be summed up in four words: lively, fruity, fresh and elegant, as only a rose blend can be.
