The bouquet is deep, pure and marvelously complex, wafting from the glass in a blend of tangerine, cherry skin, rye bread, a complex base of chalky soil tones, dried flowers, a touch of clove and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and seamless, with a superb core of fruit, very refined mousse, impeccable balance and a very long, complex and vibrant finish. I love Comtes de Champagne Rosé from the moment that it is released, but it seems like it really hits one of its sweet spots in its evolution around age fifteen! collapse

Spicy strawberry, redcurrant, blood orange and minerals on the nose, plus a hint of jasmine. Nervy, focused and light on its feet, with fresh red fruit and tangerine flavors underpinned by juicy acidity. The racy finish offers excellent lift and a lingering minerality. A rose of elegance more than power. collapse

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.
