A delicious single vintage Rosé from the famous Taittinger Champagne House.
2006 was a hot year, and rather dry, but the grapes still performed well. This wine is made with 70% Pinot Noir (with 12% from the Bouzy region and 100% from Grand Crus) and 30% Chardonnay grapes from the Côtes des Blancs region (also 100% sourced from Grand Crus). the Pinot Noir offer rich fruitiness, whilst the Chardonnay provides touches of citrus, white peach and flowers.
This wine is made with just the first pressing of the grapes, to preserve the wine’s structure and aging potential. It has been cellar aged for a time, ensuring a complexity and well rounded character.
Taittinger Rosé 2006 pours a deep pink colour, with a delicate foam and fine, elegant bubbles. The Champagne offers notes of red fruits, orange, quince, blackcurrant, sweet cherries, almond, brioche, a little floral flavour and some cream.
The bottling airs really well with lamb, baked pears or with salty Asian food such as Ramen.
