Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007

Champagne, FranceThe Comtes Rosé is only produced only in exceptional years, and then only with Grand Cru grapes. The mix is chardonnay (30 percent) from Côte des Blancs and pinot noir (70 percent) from Bouzy. The final blend has 15 percent pinot noir added as a still red wine before spending at least eight years on its lees. Production is tiny, and only the very best of the free-run juice makes it into the bottle. The colour is super pale salmon, and the nose is fresh and exuberant expressing strawberries, raspberries and cranberries supported by a creamy brioche note. An elegant, tight, electric stunning pink bubble that has everything you could want in a rosé Champagne. It should effortlessly age a decade. Superb with most fish dishes and select Chinese dishes.Tasted: 24 September 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: QC 276.25 SAQ Producer: Champagne TaittingerDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
