Salmon pink with copper highlights. Fine, persistent effervescence. Intense , complex and pleasantly fruity, the nose reveals aromas of red berry fruit and freshly squeezed citrus fruit, then light vegetal fragrances and floral scents. The palate offers lots of freshness and excellent balance. lovely balsamic and floral notes precede the spicy aromas. Delicious finish.
Orange rose. An inviting scent of raspberries, black berries and blackcurrants. A seductive first sip of prune, marmalade and orange peel wedded to hints of liquorice and leather. A vigorous embrace with of a hint of red berries, emanations of cinnamon. A fresh and drawn out finale.
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.
Tasting notes. 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.
Drinking suggestions. 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.
