Champagne Taittinger Prestige Rosétext

Champagne Taittinger Prestige Rosé NV

Champagne, FranceThis deeper hued rosé is a blend of 30% chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier, and the remaining, pinot noir from 36 crus, including 15% still wine from Riceys and Montagne de Reims. Quite present and fruit forward, with smouldering wild cherry and raspberry driven with acidity through a lingering salinity on the finish. Really smart, this gobbles up the 9 g/L RS, leaving it feeling briskly dry. It's easy to see why this is their 2nd best selling cuvée, after their flagship Brut Reserve. Though the clear glass clearly shows the deep pink hue, one has to worry about lightstrike.Tasted: 24 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
