Champagne Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007

Created as early as the 18th century and served in the royal French courts,
rosé champagne is at the very source of the success of champagne in
general. A symbol of joyful, liberated luxury in the “Roaring Twenties”, it is still
highly prized today. It becomes an extremely rare, very exclusive pleasure
with the Comtes de Champagne Rosé. This cuvee is indeed only produced in
exceptional years, not only for the Chardonnay grapes but also for the Pinot Noir.
As the rarest cuvee of Maison Taittinger, it is a legendary champagne
appreciated above all else by Rudolf Nureyev, the ballet dancer-choreographer:
“ ...When I drink Comtes de Champagne rosé, I do not dance, I fly...”

Champagne Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007

This Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007 is the champagne
par excellence of the gastronomic world, enhancing delicate
white meat dishes as well as revealing its full potential
when paired with lobster. A fabulous vintage whose subtle,
exuberant energy fuses sublimely with the intense flavour of
certain cheeses, such as old Comté or Chaource, or with the
zesty sweetness of baked pears or blueberry tart.
2007 is a fully matured vintage. Its superb maturity tantalizes
all the senses with a deep pink robe highlighted with glints
of copper, an extremely delicate persistent effervescence, a
nose of crushed strawberries, lime and liquorice underlined
by a hint of roast coffee and cacao. The palate is entranced
by a variation of gourmet sensations. The fresh, precise and
taut attack gives way to reveal a supple, molten and heady
structure. The finish imparts fruity notes underscored by a
saline freshness.
With the purity of its precise, gourmet aromatic structure, the
Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007 is perfectly in line with its
predecessors and promises to offer excellent ageing potential.
Comtes de Champagne Rosé is only produced when the
qualitative criteria exist to faithfully preserve the cuvee’s
signature style. Comprised of 30% Chardonnay Grands Crus
from the most prestigious Côte des Blancs terroirs combined
with 70% Pinot Noir sourced from the Montagne de Reims
Grands Crus, this blend is enhanced with 15% red wine
from Bouzy Pinots, whose somewhat long pre-maceration
fermentation ensures a superb tannic structure with fruit

forward aromas of red and black berries. Before being
exposed to light, Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007 will
have undergone more than 10 years of ageing in the heart
of the Saint-Nicaise chalk cellars dating from Gallo-Roman
times; a maturation that guarantees the complexity of the
wine’s aromas.
