Champagne Taittinger Prestige Rosé
1st September 2014
Taittinger Prestige Rosé immediately stands out with its intense shimmering hue, produced by a complex rosé blend. The addition to the final blend of still red wine (15%) using the best Pinots Noirs from Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys, gives this cuvée its incomparable colour and intense vibrancy on the palate.
The intense and brilliant body is bright pink in colour. The bubbles are fine, and the mousse persistent. The full nose, wonderfully expressive, is both fresh and young. It gives off aromas of red fruits (freshly crushed wild raspberry, cherry, blackcurrant).
On the palate, this wine strikes a fine balance of velvety and full-bodied. The flavours are reminiscent of fresh, crisp red fruits. The palate can be summed up in four words: lively, fruity, fresh and elegant, as only a rosé blend can be.
Taittinger Prestige Rosé can be enjoyed both early on and at the end of an evening. Deliciously fragranced for an aperitif, it is also a subtle accompaniment to fruit desserts, including fruit tart, fruit salad and red fruit crumble.
