Blended from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, this is a succulently fruity, supple and aromatic Champagne with fine bubbles and a crisp, refreshing finish of extended length.
Taittinger Cuvée Prestige Rosé is intense cherry-pink in color with extremely fine, persistent pinpoint bubbles rising in delicate strands to the surface of the wine. Its classic, aromatic Pinot fragrance of red raspberries and strawberries is offset by elegant, subtle floral and earth nuances. On the palate, the ripe, full berry flavors are vibrant yet refined, delicately balanced by a fresh acidity which carries into a crisp, refreshing finish of persistent length.
"A swirl of bubbles carries fresh raspberry flavors along with a lively green edge of acidity. The flavors are persistent and clean, the wine mouthwatering." 90 Points
Wine & Spirits
"A firm, toasty rose, with roasted hazelnut and smoke notes underscoring kirsch, dried strawberry, piecrust and fresh ginger flavors. This is lip-smacking, softened and balanced by a fine, creamy texture. "
"A bit darker in color than many Rosés and a wine that is made in a richer style, this generous sparkler mimics fruity California versions to a certain extent even while showing a complexing trim of autolyzed yeast. It is full and foamy and fairly long on the palate with a good bit of phenolic grip at the finish, and, if perhaps slightly too much of a good thing for unaccompanied sipping, it afford pleasure aplenty and will make dandy drinking with relatively flavorful foods."
