Notes from the Winemaker:

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 color 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.

Tasting

The intense and brilliant body is bright pink in color. The bubbles are fine, 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 fine balance of velvety and full-bodied. The flavors 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.

Drinking suggestions:
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.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Blood orange color with attractive notes of cherry stones, dried flowers, strawberries and tangerines. Hints of iron and pie crust. Full of flavor, with a full body, sleek bubbles and a deep, beautiful fruit quality. Blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier with 14% red wine. Drink now. (Jul 2023)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The latest release of Taittinger's NV Brut Prestige Rosé is showing very well, revealing inviting aromas of red berries, plums, orange zest, crisp orchard fruit and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy but incisive, this bottling is based on the Brut Réserve, yet the addition of still red wine—much of which is produced in house—imparts structuring phenolics that complement the wine's generous core of fruit to great effect. Readers should not that this cuvée's clear glass makes it vulnerable to light strike, so it's especially important to buy properly stored bottles." - William Kelley (Sep 2020)

90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The NV Champagne Prestige Brut Rosé is a bold style, with a deep pink hue and a distinctive, fruit-forward red wine profile. Its notes of ripe raspberry, beet root, fresh herbs, crushed roses are followed by a structured and energetic mousse, with some tannic grip that would make a great application for shellfish. Drink over the next 10-15 years." (Nov 2022)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A firm rosé, with a creamy mousse and a toasty edge meshed with flavors of strawberry tart, mandarin orange peel, brioche and smoke. Drink now. 1,800 cases imported." – AN (Nov 2022)

90 Points - International Wine Report:
"The Prestige Rosé from Taittinger is composed of 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier. It begins with pretty aromas of crushed raspberries and strawberries laced with mineral and citrus zest that all take shape in the glass. On the palate this is lithe and focused, with a delicate mousse that showcases a wonderful astringency and poise, followed by juicy flavors of red berries and citrus zest which linger on the finish."
