Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rose (1.5 Liter Magnum) 2005
from Champagne, France
Comtes de Champagne Rose 2005 is a rich rose color, with touches of violet. The bubbles are extraordinarily
fine, rising vigorously in the glass, forming a wonderfully fine necklace of mousse. The nose affirms intense aromas of ripe,
sweet fruit, including crystallised strawberries, quince jelly, violet sweets and pears in syrup. There are hints of the cooked
fruit aromas of plum tart. The mid-palate confirms the initial aromas of sweet quince jelly, and develops richness with the
flavors of fresh figs.
A suitable accompaniment to light cured meats, veal, lamb dishes and ribs as well as fruit salad and berry desserts.
Blend: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
"The 2005 Brut Rose Comtes de Champagne is rich, round and seductive in this vintage. Warm and resonant, the 2005 blossoms in all directions with gorgeous aromatics and expressive, generous fruit. I generally prefer more vibrant vintages for the estate's Rose, especially for aging, but immediate accessibility is one of the undisputed attributes of the 2005."
