Taittinger Prestige Rosé immediately stands out for its intense, shimmering hue whose secret lies in the fact that it is a blend, which is more complex and costly to produce. A quantity of still red wine (15%) produced from the best Pinot Noirs from Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys is added to the final blend to give this cuvée its unmistakable colour and vibrant intensity on the palate. The high proportion of Chardonnay (30%) that completes the blend brings the elegance and delicacy that underpin Taittinger's signature style.
Taittinger Prestige Rosé can be enjoyed both early on and at the end of an evening.
Description of Taittinger Prestige Rosé
Taittinger Prestige Rosé (Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir)
- View: The intense and brilliant body is bright pink in colour.
- Nose: The full nose, wonderfully expressive, is both fresh and young. It gives off aromas of red fruits (freshly crushed wild raspberry, cherry, blackcurrant).
- Mouth: On the palate, this wine strikes a fine balance of a velvet texture and full-bodied taste. The flavours are reminiscent of fresh, crisp red fruits. The palate can be summed up in four words: lively, fruity, fresh and elegant, as only a rosé blend can be.
VINEYARDS: Wine: Taittinger (Partez)
GRAPES: 70% pinot noir and pinot Meunier and the other 30% is chardonnay
PAIRING: Deliciously fragranced for an apéritif, it is also a subtle accompaniment to fruit desserts, including fruit tarts, fruit salads and red fruit crumble.
