Delicate red fruit scents fill this clean, elegant rosé, 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.

Smoky red berries and blood orange on the expressive nose, accented by spices and flowers. Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering intense raspberry, bitter cherry and orange pith flavors and notes of toasty lees and candied flowers. Shows excellent clarity on the seamless, spicy, impressively long finish. Twelve percent of the pinot noir in the blend was added as still wine. - Josh Raynolds

The Taittinger 2005 Brut Rose Comtes de Champagne exhibits a delectable nose of fraise du bois, red raspberry and maraschino discreetly complemented by anise, vanilla, and Ceylon tea. Silken in feel and with exceptionally fine and at once stimulating and caressing mousse, this finishes with luscious abundance of juicy fresh red berries supported by appropriate sweetness, hints of fine, tea-like tannins, crunchy berry seeds, chalk and toasted almond serving for satisfying counterpoint. It should prove rewarding to follow for several years, but don’t miss out on its youthful pleasures! - David Schildknecht
