Taittinger Brut Prestige Rosé
Wine SpectatorRich 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. 1,000 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastLight 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.
Wine AdvocateIncorporating 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.
