Buy Taittinger Prestige Rose
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.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Firm and spicy, this chalky rose shows tightly knit flavors of black raspberry and cherry fruit, fresh ginger and pink grapefruit zest, with hints of honey and almond skin. Drink now through 2018. 1,500 cases imported.-AN  (Nov 30 2014)

Vinous 90 points - (50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier; 9 g/l dosage; L3374SV05900): Light orange-pink. Cherry, orange zest and fresh rose aromas show very good clarity and energy. Sappy red fruit flavors display a spicy quality, picking up energy and a floral nuance with air. Concentrated, vibrant and precise, finishing on a zesty mineral note, with lingering spiciness and firm grip.  (Jan 2015)

Taittinger Cuvée Prestige Rosé is intense cherry-pink in color with extremely fine, persistent pinpoint bubbles rising in delicate strands to the surface of the wine. Its classic, aromatic Pinot fragrance of red raspberries and strawberries is offset by elegant, subtle floral and earth nuances. On the palate, the ripe, full berry flavors are vibrant yet refined, delicately balanced by a fresh acidity which carries into a crisp, refreshing finish of persistent length.
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.

Producer
Champagne Taittinger is one of the few remaining family owned and operated Champagne houses. The firm is distinguished for its extensive vineyard holdings of 752 acres, including prestigious Grand Cru vineyards in the Cote des Blancs and Montagne de Reims regions. Unlike most large houses, Champagne Taittinger relies primarily on estate grapes for its portfolio of Champagnes. Also unique are the higher proportion of Chardonnay in its wines that gives Taittinger its signature style, and the time devoted to aging the wines before release—most often greatly exceeding the legal requirement, in a practice that also has become a Taittinger hallmark.
