The light salmon-colored 1999 Comtes de Champagne Rose sports a demure nose of yeast and mineral-dusted strawberries. Tasters lulled by the shy aromatics will be floored by this wine's intense burst of fruit on the palate. Powerful sappy and concentrated it explodes in the mouth with red fruits toast yeast minerals and notes of currants. This is a deep complex and immensely long rose.

Restrained and understated on the nose with delicate strawberry and raspberry aromas accented by fresh rose and rhubarb. Silky-smooth on the palate with flavors of wild strawberry and fresh cranberry kissed by cinnamon spice. This is quite young but promises to be another wonderful bottle of Champagne. The finish is fine-grained precise and very long.

Taittinger

In 1932, Pierre Taittinger, captivated by the Champagne region and by Chateau de la Marquetterie, developed a champagne business with his brother-in-law Paul Eveque. His son Francois took the torch 13 years later, making improvements to both the cellars and the vineyards. Step by step, he established the Taittinger brand as one of the great Champagne houses, known for its Chardonnay-dominant cuvees and in particular, the prestigious Comtes de Champagne.

Taittinger was sold to US investment group Starwood in 2005, but was bought back by the family a year later. Today, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger has built a team to embark on a new adventure in the spirit of conquest and continuity, including the production of sparkling wine in the English region of Kent.
