Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Brut Rose 2007, Reims, France

This cuvée, which is always a vintage, is only made when the year has been exceptional and all the demanding quality criteria have been met. It is made from 30% Chardonnay Grands Crus from the prestigious Cote des Blancs region and 70% Pinot Noir from the Grands Crus from the Montagne de Reims region. The Comtes de Champagne Rose owes the secret of its uniqueness to the 15% of still red wine which is added to the blend. It is the Champagne House’s most rare cuvee. Its fruity character and smooth, caressing taste make it a delicious luxury to only be enjoyed in small sips. Another legend, Rudolph Noureev, said, “When I drink Comtes de Champagne rose, I no longer dance, I fly…”
