Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé Brut Vintage 2008 Magnum 150cl

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2008 Vintage is made of 30% Chardonnay Grands Crus from the most prestigious Côte des Blancs terroirs combined with 70% Pinot Noir sourced from the Montagne de Reims Grands Crus of which 12% is enhanced with red wine from Bouzy Pinots, whose somewhat long pre-fermentation maceration ensures a superb tannic structure with fruit-forward aromas of red and black berries.

The Taittinger Comtes de Champagne vintages are the quintessential House style. Some vintages, be they Blanc de Blancs or sometimes - in exceptional years - Rosé, become classics and join the legendary status of the top wines from the Champagne region. 

"When I drink Comtes de Champagne rosé, I no longer dance, I fly..." - Rudolph Noureev

Pairs well with…

  • Shellfish
  • White Meat
This 2008 vintage is cloaked in an elegantly coloured robe of bright salmon pink. A hint of copper reflections highlight the fine, creamy bubbles in this exceptional cuvee. The nose is simultaneously indulgent and fresh, evoking aromas of raspberry, black cherry, then lightly stewed peaches and pears, all of which is further elevated by subtle scents of menthol. On the palate, the incredibly fine, precise attack gives way to the perception of a chiselled tannic structure, that reveals the full power of the limestone Grand Crus terroirs from which it heralds. Held taught by a superb chalky acidity and exquisite freshness, the palate extends in beautiful, aromatic purity to leave a lingering impression of delicate salinity.
Marry with a singular dish that stands out such as pigeon, still pink, in order to balance perfectly between freshness and structure. Alternatively, Shellfish - especially lobster- can reveal the wine's full potential.
