Comprised 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, this blend is enhanced with 15% red wine from Bouzy Pinots, whose long pre-maceration fermentation ensures a superb tannic structure with fruit forward aromas of red and black berries. Importantly, whilst the Blanc de Blancs version of this wine is only crafted in transcendent vintages for Chardonnay, the Rosé must occur in years exceptional for both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, making editions of the wine few and far between. Each and every plot under Taittinger’s care is cultivated and worked by hand with the utmost care following environmentally friendly principles.

 

Vinified plot by plot to ensure each individual terroir imparts its uniquely sublime characteristics into the final wine, the highly skilled cellar team blend the final Champagne from the embarrassment of riches at their disposal. A mere 5% of the wine is aged for 5 months in new oak to impart a gentle and subtle toasty note to the final wine, before the liquid treasure is left to slumber for at least a decade in the chalk quarries beneath Saint-Nicaise.

 

As the single rarest cuvée produced by Maison Taittinger, Comtes de Champagne Rosé is a wine rivalled by few others in the esteem of Champagne lovers. A truly exceptional cuvée in every sense of the word, it is quite possibly the finest gastronomic example of the style available right now, carrying enough weight to pair with spicy rich shellfish yet maintaining elegance and vivacity to accompany fruit-based desserts.
