IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Comtes de Champagne Rose 2006 is a rich rose color, 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 flavors of fresh figs.

A suitable accompaniment to light cured meats, veal, lamb dishes and ribs as well as fruit salad and berry desserts. Blend: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay.

Wine Spectator 95 points - 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.December/2015
Vinous 95 points - Taittinger’s 2006 Comtes de Champagne Rose has come along nicely over the last six months. 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, July/2015
Wine Advocate 93 points - Taittinger’s 2006 Comtes de Champagne Rose 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 Rose with nice purity and freshness. The finish reveals a sweet intensity and good length..Stephan Reinhardt, June/2016
James Suckling 96 points - A 15% addition of still red pinot to the Blanc de Blancs Comtes works well in that the DNA of the white version is familiar to those fans out there, but is delivered with a seductive twist. Aromas of wild cherries, rose water, cherries and citrus lead to a palate with fresh red cherry. Bold and rich, this will develop handy savoriness with age. Best from 2020..October/2017
Decanter 92 points - WORLD WINE AWARDS 2018 (SILVER): Red fruits and marzipan aromas and exquisite tension on the palate from start to finish; impressive salinity, too, and subtle redcurrant notes..May/2018
