Taittinger Prestige Rose NV
In 1734, Jacques Fourneaux established a winery, which Pierre Taittinger then bought in 1932, building the label’s reputation for excellence. Sold to the Starwood group in 2005, Taittinger reconsidered and bought the wine house back a year later with for a cool 660 million Euros. That hiccup is now forgotten as Taittinger Prestige Rosé
Prestige Rosé’s ripe red fruits including strawberry, raspberry and cherry dominate on both the nose and the palate, balanced by aromas of white flowers and warm spice and tastes of tart crunchy apple and citrusy acids. A refreshing, flawlessly balanced sparkling wine with excellent length and sublime clean lines.

Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide
With the same dosage as Brut Réserve, Taittinger uses tannins rather than sweetness to balance the mouth feel of its rosé. The result is exceedingly sophisticated, bringing a gorgeous tannin texture to a delicately stylish rosé. It's fresh and young with primary rose petal aromas and a lingering, enchanting palate of soft strawberries and exquisite rose petals. A stale 2007 disgorgement had a distinctly copper hue, lacked primary fruit and finished with roast hazelnut bitterness. With such old stock still lingering in warehouses and no way to identify them (there is no indication of disgorgement date on bottles), I can only recommend against purchasing this cuvée until old stock is moved on. This a disappointing situation as fresh examples are stunning.
