    (L8160WE02100): Vivid pink. Red berries, orange peel, cinnamon and fresh flowers on the high-pitched nose. Juicy, precise and very pure, offering intense, spice-accented red fruit flavors with hints of exotic spices and candied rose. Aeration brings out notes of cherry and rhubarb, which add depth and a bitter touch to the very long, juicy, fruit-dominated finish. Looks to be built for a graceful evolution but this Champagne is delicious now.

    The 2004 Brut Rose Comtes de Champagne is a majestic wine that gradually opens up in the glass to reveal subtle layers of expressive, fragrant fruit. The wine picks up body on the mid-palate where the substance of the fruit emerges with greater weight. The mousse and the wine's overall balance are impeccable. Although the 2004 Brut Rose Comtes de Champagne is delicious now, readers will probably want to give this at least a few years in the cellar. The wine should be magnificent in a few years- time. The 2004 Brut Rose Comtes de Champagne is 30% Chardonnay and 70% Pinot Noir (including 12% still Pinot), all from Grand Cru villages. Disgorged: end of April, 2008, (not indicated on label).

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.
