Taittinger Cuvee Prestige Rose

Taittinger Cuvee Prestige Rose 750ML     
Sku: 11778

This elegant and racy cuvee is crafted with superb Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit harvested from Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys. The majority of the grapes are pressed in vineyard press houses. At the winery the must undergoes a cool-temperature fermentation. 85% of the blend is vinified as white wine and the remainder is vinified as red wine. The delicate color and intense vibrancy on the palate is obtained by adding a small proportion of still red Pinot Noir from Ambonnay, Bouzy and des Riceys. The final cuvee is blended from an extensive range of at least 15 diverse crus, and usually more, of the Champagne region as well as young reserve wines that express the blend’s fresh, lively Pinot fruit. After second fermentation in the bottle, the wine spends three years on the lees in the bottle to develop complexity and bouquet.

Tasting notes
This cuvee is a vibrant pink color with fine bubbles and persistent foam. The full and wonderfully expressive nose delivers aromas of crushed raspberries, cherries and black currants that lead into crisp, fresh red fruit flavors on the palate. Velvety and full-bodied, this wine is lively, fruity and fresh.

Food pairing
A delicious, fragrant aperitif, the wine is also a subtle accompaniment to fruit desserts, including fruit tart, fruit salad and red fruit crumble.
