(made from roughly two-thirds pinot noir and 30% chardonnay): Light, bright orange. A highly aromatic bouquet evokes buttered toast, raspberry, tangerine and white flowers, with a subtle mineral nuance adding vibrancy. Smoky and plush on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering powerful red berry flavors and a touch of honeysuckle. A silky finish, expansive and persistent, repeats the notes of toast and red fruit.

Site Blog: Vinography: A Wine Blog Bright baby pink in the glass with orange highlights and medium fine bubbles, this wine has a nose of rosehips, tangerine zest, and stony mineral aromas. In the mouth it is bright and quite tart and dry, with flavors of orange peel, hibiscus, and toasted bread. Not quite as rich or complex as it could be, but pleasant enough.

Site Blog: Unidentified Appellation While not in line w/ their Prelude NV from grand cru vineyards (but what is?), the Prestige always delivers a complex, sharply focused performance. Full of toasted nuts, creamy raspberry, and buttered citrus fruits that pack a well delineated, linear punch throughout the palate. As noble a wine as any

About This Producer


Taittinger, located in Reims, is the third oldest Champagne house and one of the few remaining independent, family-owned houses. It produces both fine non-vintage and vintage Champagnes. The prestige cuvee is the vintage Champagne Comtes de Champagne, named after the original Comtes de Champagne, who resided in Reims in the 13th century building subsequently purchased by Taittinger. The blanc de blancs version is produced from 6 Grand Cru sites in the Cote de Blancs. The Comtes de Champagne Rose is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, made by the addition of red wine rather than the saignee. Taittinger's style is elegant and aromatic with complex, creamy richness.
