Winemaker Notes

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

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Inviting from first sniff to lasting finish, and hitting the expected marks at every stop along the way, this lovely effort is both light and lively with a surprising burst of cherryish fruit and complex in its toasty, yeasty, chalky, somewhat creamy aromas. Perfectly formed small, suitably insistent bubbles frame a bright, vital wine whose fine balance and energy carry its elegant flavors into a long, persistent finish. It may be dear in price, but it is a wine to choose for the best occasions.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Delicate red fruit scents fill this clean, elegant rose, its tart strawberry flavors lasting, harmonious, glowing with light fruit sweetness. With its freshness and refinement, this is a mouthwatering match for seared duck breast or roast squab.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Lightly toasty and creamy in texture, this graceful rosé offers a firm backbone of acidity and rich flavors of raspberry coulis, dried strawberry, mille-feuille and graphite.

Champagne Taittinger, , France - Other regions
Taittinger
Champagne Taittinger was established in 1931 by Pierre Taittinger on the foundations of Forest-Forneaux, itself established in 1734 and the third-oldest wine producing house of Champagne. Taittinger is today proprietor of approximately 600 acres of vines among which are included parcels in the one hundred - percent rated villages of Cramant and Avize in the Cote des Blancs; and Bouzy, Mailly, Ambonnay and Verzenay in the Montagne de Reims. The Taittinger Estate is one of the three most extensive in the Champagne district, and the firm's major holdings in Chardonnay vineyards are the physical expression of the Taittinger philosophy and style.

Carneros

View all wine

Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. Its close proximity to the San Francisco Peninsula and the San Pablo Bay is instrumental in controlling the climate of the area. The winds from the San Pablo Bay create a cooling effect ideal for producing wines with crisp acidity and balanced flavors.

This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and more recently, Old-World style Syrah. While more delicate than most wines from neighboring regions, these are firmly structured, complex, and full of flavor. Carneros is also an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne.
