When Pierre Taittinger first discovered the Champagne region, he was a young liaison officer during the First World War. It was thanks to his passion for wine and gastronomy that he returned several years later and, with his brother-in-law, invested all his energy into the development of the nascent Champagne business.
Since 1932, step by step, Champagne Taittinger has grown and taken its place among the great Champagne houses, imposing with audacity and innovative style particularly influenced by Chardonnay.
Having bought back the family business in the summer of 2006, Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger has surrounded himself with a team that is both young and bound together by a spirit of conquest and continuity. His daughter Vitalie and son Clovis have accompanied him on this adventure.
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.
The intense and brilliant body is bright pink in colour. The bubbles are fi ne, and the mousse persistent.
The full nose, wonderfully expressive, is both fresh and young. It gives off aromas of red fruits (freshly crushed wild raspberry, cherry, blackcurrant).
On the palate, this wine strikes a fi ne balance of velvety and full-bodied. The fl avours 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.
Taittinger Prestige Rosé can be enjoyed both early on and at the end of an evening. Deliciously fragranced for an aperitif, it is also a subtle accompaniment to fruit desserts, including fruit tart, fruit salad and red fruit crumble
