Taittinger Prestige Rosé
Based on the Brut Reserve, with the addition of red wines largely produced in-house (from sites including Les Riceys), the latest release of Taittinger's NV Brut Prestige Rosé is showing very well, bursting with aromas of raspberries, red berries, brioche, rose petals and blood orange. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and comparatively textural, with good depth at the core and a chalky, gently phenolic and distinctly sapid finish.
Rich and toasty, this harmonious rosé offers a creamy mousse and a lovely array of pureed blackberry, plum tart, toasted brioche, crystallized honey and lemon parfait flavors. Bright and focused, with a graphite- and spice-laced finish. Disgorged November 2014. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases imported.
A lively mousse gives this wine an immediately ebullient character. Add to that the soft raspberry flavors, and the wine is a real charmer. Fruity and ripe, it is balanced with just the right acidity to support the fine fruitiness. Drink now.
