The Taittinger Prestige Rose is a unique and complex blend. The signature Taittinger high proportion of Chardonnay (30%) brings elegance and delicacy to the blend, while 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. It is this still red wine that gives the Cuvee its unmistakable colour and vibrant intensity on the palate. The Prestige Rose can be described as lively, fruity, fresh, and elegant.

With the same dosage as Brut Réserve, Taittinger uses tannins rather than sweetness to balance the mouth feel of its rosé. The result is exceedingly sophisticated, bringing a gorgeous tannin texture to a delicately stylish rosé. It's fresh and young with primary rose petal aromas and a lingering, enchanting palate of soft strawberries and exquisite rose petals. A stale 2007 disgorgement had a distinctly copper hue, lacked primary fruit and finished with roast hazelnut bitterness. With such old stock still lingering in warehouses and no way to identify them (there is no indication of the disgorgement date on bottles), I can only recommend against purchasing this cuvée until old stock is moved on. This a disappointing situation as fresh examples is stunning.

Tasting Profile

The intense and brilliant body is bright pink in colour. The bubbles are fine, and the mousse is persistent. The full nose, wonderfully expressive, is both fresh and young. It gives off the aromas of red fruits (freshly crushed wild raspberry, cherry, blackcurrant).
On the palate, this wine strikes a fine balance of a velvet texture and full body 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.
