Taittinger Prestige Rosé NV
The Taittinger Prestige Rosé cuvée is remarkably vibrant and sophisticated. Its taste reveals a subtle balance between the freshness and structure of the ever-present red fruit, making it full-bodied and smooth. Its strong character is also shown in its delightfully unique, intense, shimmering colour. A superbly blended rosé.
It stands out instantly with its intense, shimmering colour; the secret of which lies in its composition and delicate formulation.
"Taittinger's intensely colored NV Brut Prestige Rosé is a blend of 35% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Meunier (with 30% Reserve wines) that gets its raspberry color from 15% red Pinot Noir still wine sourced in the Montagne de Reims. Displaying raspberry and strawberry paté flavors on the subtle but aromatic nose, this is a very delicate, fresh and elegant Brut Rosé with a round but stimulatingly dry and finely grippy finish. It's not meant to be disparaging when I mention that some fruit drops flavors on the nose and finish and note it's toward the border of what I taste as dry."

"Spice and graphite accents lace flavors of crushed raspberry and peach, mineral, biscuit and candied lime zest in this open-knit rosé Champagne. Firm, with a lively, polished bead."
