  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    ($200) Pale silvery-pink color, with an energetic, frothy mousse. Restrained and understated on the nose, with delicate strawberry and raspberry aromas accented by fresh rose and rhubarb. Silky-smooth on the palate, with flavors of wild strawberry and fresh cranberry kissed by cinnamon spice. This is quite young but promises to be another wonderful bottle of Champagne. The finish is fine-grained, precise and very long.

    Elegant, highlighted with cherry and ginger notes, this is a slim bubbly, with a firm structure. It's well-balanced, and a tactile sensation frames the finish.

    The light salmon-colored 1999 Comtes de Champagne Rose sports a demure nose of yeast and mineral-dusted strawberries. Tasters lulled by the shy aromatics will be floored by this wine's intense burst of fruit on the palate. Powerful, sappy, and concentrated, it explodes in the mouth with red fruits, toast, yeast, minerals, and notes of currants. This is a deep, complex, and immensely long rose.

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.
