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 in fact 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.
Production area: Montaigne de Reims, Les Riceys(Aube), Sézannes, Ambonnay.
Grapes and assemblage: pinot noir 55%, chardonnay 30%, 15% still red wine - Vintage base plus 30% of "vins de rèserve". Red wine alone owned vineyards, of two vintages.
Vinification and ageing: refermentation in the bottle and ageing for about two and a half years on the yeasts.
Colour: bright pink
Perlage: fine and persistent
Bouquet: the full nose, wonderfully expressive, is both fresh and young. It gives off aromas of red fruits (freshly crushed wild raspberry, cherry, blackcurrant).
Taste: 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.
Dosage: 9.0 g / l
