Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Brut Champagne Blend Rosé 2006

$249

...Intensely perfumed, Pinot-inflected aromatics carry through the mid-palate and finish as the 2006 shows off its depth and pure energy. Veins of chalky minerality give the red berry and cranberry flavors an extra kick of energy. The 2006 is both powerful and delicate at the same, with crystalline precision and fabulous depth. Hints of orange peel, mint, cinnamon and cranberry add further shades of nuance on the complete, beautifully articulated finish. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Some odd aromas, and abrasive mouthfeel. Disappointing.

Taittinger visite in Reims. Notes of cranberry and red apples, some citrus. More complex than the 07 CdC BdB. More red fruit notes than other rose cuvées I’ve enjoyed. Very nice.

Cranberry, hard candy, oak. Great wine but not my preferred style.

Pekne, kourove, ovocne, ma pred sebou jeste hodne casu ke zrani, neni tak kulate. 15 proc cerveneho vina. PN. A lovely Champagne, offering a rich and expressive palate of dried strawberry and white peach fruit, with toasted hazelnut, pastry, candied ginger and lemon curd flavors set in a fine and elegant frame. Long and creamy on the satiny finish. Drink now through 2031. 60 cases imported. –AN Taittinger's 2006 Comtes de Champagne Rosé blends Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with 16% red wine, mainly from Bouzy. Lovely, pure and fresh on the nose, with spicy sweet cherry aromas and red berry flavors, this is a rich and potent, full-bodied and firmly structured Rosé with nice purity and freshness. The finish reveals a sweet intensity and good length. - Stephan Reinhardt

Wow. I've never had a rose champagne like that. The subtle red fruit it gains from the Pinot is off the charts. Awesome to have this side by side with the blanc de blanc after the cave tour at Taittinger
