Blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay.
Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007 is a blend of Pinot Noir (100% “Grands Crus”), which is red wine from the vineyards of Bouzy, and Chardonnay grapes, from the vineyards of the Côte des Blancs (100% “Grands Crus”), bringing refinement and freshness to the composition. Only juices from the first pressing are used to ensure the structure and the long ageing potential so essential to this exceptional champagne. Cellar-ageing allows the complexity of the aromas to develop and rounds off the structure of Comtes de Champagne Rosé.
The light rust and amber color is enticing. Aromas of dried rose petals, cinnamon and nutmeg. Hints of dried meat, smoke and sage. Orange peel, too. Full-bodied with a compact, creamy texture. So fine and delicious. Great, subtle and complex flavors. More like a lightly aged, premier-cru Volnay, but with the magic of Champagne. James Suckling – 99
