Champagne Taittinger was established in 1931 by Pierre Taittinger on the foundations of Forest-Forneaux, itself established in 1734 and the third-oldest wine producing house of Champagne. The Taittinger Estate is one of the three most extensive in the Champagne district.
Their Cuvee Prestige Rose is blended from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, giving it a succulent, fruity expression with supple and fine bubbles and a crisp, refreshing finish that lingers forever.
It boasts this intense dark pink color. It’s classic Taittinger– aromatic Pinot notes of raspberries and strawberries offset by elegant, subtle floral and earth notes. On the mouthfeel it’s full and creamy with vibrant tension, and delicately balanced by a fresh acidity which carries it all the way through.

Darker color. Lots of fruit and a creamy texture with cooked apples and cherries and strawberry undertones. Medium to full-bodied. Delicious finish that is dry and fruity. Spicy. White pepper. Young strawberry at the end. Drink now.

The latest release of Taittinger’s NV Brut Prestige Rosé is showing very well, revealing inviting aromas of red berries, plums, orange zest, crisp orchard fruit and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy but incisive, this bottling is based on the Brut Réserve, yet the addition of still red wine—much of which is produced in house—imparts structuring phenolics that complement the wine’s generous core of fruit to great effect. Readers should not that this cuvée’s clear glass makes it vulnerable to light strike, so it’s especially important to buy properly stored bottles.
