Taittinger Prestige Rosé NV

Champagne, FranceTaittinger Rosé is a gently deeper pink hue, afforded by the 15 percent still pinot noir in the blend. The cuvée is 50/35/15 pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot meunier from nearly 45 crus, including some reserve wines. Pretty florals, raspberry wrap around a pure strawberry core, one that runs the palate with a fine texture and brisk crunchy acidity. Nine g/l dosage, which is common across the house. Lovely freshness here, with evident pinot character, which is welcome. My bottle was based on the 2014 vintage, which is encoded in laser on the base of the bottle.Tasted: 15 October 2018Tasted by: Prices: QC 81.50 SAQ NS 97.00 NSLC BC 110.00 private wine shops Producer: Champagne TaittingerDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
