Champagne Taittinger Prestige Rosé NV France
£50 Waitrose, Asda, Wine Rack, Majestic, Harrods
12.5% alcohol
There’s 15% of still red wine from Ambonnay and Bouzy in the blend, added to white Champagne base wine with at least 30% Chardonnay in it. So, unsurprisingly, this is deep pink in colour. How does it taste? Lovely bright red cherry and raspberry fruit dominate this deeply coloured pink fizz, which has a brightness and purity to it. It’s very bright and linear with a pure citrus core and good acidity, which serve to highlight the purity of the fruit. There’s a fruit sweetness, too, although the overall impression is of a dry, tight wine. Really sophisticated and thoroughly accessible, and proving that there’s much more latitude for deeper coloured rosé Champagne than there is for still rosé, which is getting ever paler. Lovely stuff. 91/100
