Comtes de Champagne Rosé, made from 30% Chardonnay Grands Crus from the prestigious Côte des Blancs and 70% Pinot Noir from the Grands Crus of the Montagne de Reims, owes the secret of its rarity to the 15% of red wine that goes into its blend.
Made since the 18th century and served in the royal courts of France, rosé champagne is responsible for the success of champagne. Symbol of the joy of luxury and freedom of the 1920s, this type of champagne never goes out of fashion.
Comtes de Champagne Rosé is a unique and very exclusive pleasure. This cuvée is only produced in exceptional years and is made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé tasting notes
A salmon colour with coppery reflections, very fine and long-lasting bubbles, nose with notes of strawberry puree, lime and liquorice, nuanced by a touch of roasted coffee and cocoa beans.
On the palate, the variation of sweet sensations is surprising. The attack is fresh, precise and tense, giving way to the perception of a supple, degraded wine structure. On the finish we perceive a fruity touch enhanced by a delicate salty freshness.
