SKU #1025943 92 points Wine Spectator

 Rich and toasty, this harmonious rosé offers a creamy mousse and a lovely array of pureed blackberry, plum tart, toasted brioche, crystallized honey and lemon parfait flavors. Bright and focused, with a graphite- and spice-laced finish. Disgorged November 2014. Drink now through 2020.  (10/2015)

90 points Vinous

 Light orange-pink. Cherry, orange zest and fresh rose aromas show very good clarity and energy. Sappy red fruit flavors display a spicy quality, picking up energy and a floral nuance with air. Concentrated, vibrant and precise, finishing on a zesty mineral note, with lingering spiciness and firm grip. (JR)  (1/2015)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A distinct petrol character can be found on the strawberry, cherry, citrus peel and softly yeast-inflected scents. The supporting mousse is quite generous if not particularly fine though there is good complexity to the juicy and succulent flavors that offer solid persistence on the moderately dry finish where a hint of bitter cherry pit appears. This is drier than most rosés and there is an interesting contrast between the depth of the mid-palate and the somewhat fruit-driven character of the finale.  (10/2017)

Jancis Robinson

 Pure strawberry fragrance, fine and light but enough substance and fruit to give an honest mouthful.  (7/2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Incorporating 15% red wine from Ambonnay and Bouzy, Taittinger’s deeply salmon-colored NV Brut Rose Prestige L13575P00500 is scented with red raspberry and cherry whose exuberantly juicy freshness is complemented by distinct sweetness. A hint of geranium in the nose and welcome touches of refreshing lime and saliva-liberating salinity in the modestly sustained finish complement what is otherwise a simply - albeit attractively and generously - fruity essay in its genre, and one I would enjoy young. (DS)  (11/2013)

Wine & Spirits

 Leesy and oxidative, this is all about nutty richness. The flavors create a heady combination of ripe orange and pink grapefruit zest and lemon verbena tea. Polished and stylized.  (12/2013)

Wine Enthusiast

 Light orange-pink in color and with a good sense of some bottle age, this rich wine is full of berry fruits, red currants and acidity. It is soft, a result of the usual high Taittinger dosage, giving a wine that's fruity, just hinting at toast and ready to drink.  (12/2015)

A blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier. A large (15%) blend of still Pinot Noir in the mix. The nose has cherries, red boysenberries and fresh cream. Soft and lush on the palate with orange marmalade undertones. A great choice for people who like a slightly richer, more opulent style of brut rosé.

Additional Information:


Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
