The hallmark of Champagne Taittinger is the high proportion of Chardonnay used in winemaking which is key for crafting wines of great elegance and finesse. From the non–vintage Brut Réserve to the prestigious Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs, Taittinger’s first and foremost priority has always been the quality of the wines it produces.
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 palate can be summed up in four words: lively, fruity, fresh and elegant, as only a rosé blend can be.
