Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2005
Comtes de Champagne Rosé Millésimé 2005 is a rich rose colour, with touches of violet. The bubbles are extraordinarily fine, rising vigorously in the glass, forming a wonderfully fine necklace of mousse. The nose affirms intense aromas of ripe, sweet fruit, including crystallised strawberries, quince jelly, violet sweets and pears in syrup. There are hints of the cooked fruit aromas of plum tart. The mid-palate confirms the initial aromas of sweet quince jelly, and develops richness with the flavours of fresh figs. Food Pairing: A suitable accompaniment to light cured meats, veal, lamb dishes and ribs as well as fruit salad and berry desserts.
Wine SpectatorLightly toasty and creamy in texture, this graceful rosé offers a firm backbone of acidity and rich flavors of raspberry coulis, dried strawberry, mille-feuille and graphite. Drink now through 2022.
