What to expect


  • A lively, fruity, fresh and elegant wine, as only a rosé blend can be
  • From the prestigious champagne house Taittinger

The intense and brilliant body is bright pink in colour. The nose is both fresh and young, it gives off aromas of red fruits (wild raspberry, cherry, blackcurrant). On the palate, this wine strikes a fine balance of a velvet texture and full body taste. The flavours are reminiscent of fresh, crisp red fruits. 

Taittinger Prestige Rosé 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 in fact added to the final blend, to give this cuvée its unmistakable colour 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.

 

Tyson Stelzer - The Champagne Guide 2018 - 2019

"With a pretty, medium-salmon hue, this is a rosé that contrasts a pitch-perfect, fragrant bouquet of rose petals, red cherries and elegant strawberries, with a palate built on a depth of roast nuts and toast complexity that belies just three years of bottle age. The result is a subtle and compelling change of mood for this cuvée, more secondary and more intriguing than ever, culminating in a finish that coasts in unison, evenly harmonising chalk mineral texture with fine tannin structure. Taittinger’s aspiration with rosé is structure and a little touch of tannin, and this blend meets the brief with air."

Food suggestion


As this champagne has some body, depth and richness to it from the age, don't be shy in pairing it with some stronger flavoured dishes. Recently, we had an excellent dish from Bar Carolina in Melbourne's, South Yarra - Spaghetto All'Aragosta which is long pasta with Crayfish, garlic, chilli and fresh tomato. This would work a treat.
