Food Pairings for Champagne Taittinger Taittinger Prestige Brut Rosé
I am illogically stubborn in some instances, champagne being one of them. Although I enjoy a wide variety there is only one name I hold to. You can keep your Laurent, Dom, even Roederer (though that is a close second), I'll hold to Taittinger in terms of general sources. This is one of my favorites, before you put this off as just a Rose champagne, first perhaps put aside your prejudices and try a few decent ones. This is one of the most fragrant champagnes I've ever come across. Taittinger always places great emphasis on creating such precise flavors. It is very fruity, floral, light but has a sharp, crisp depth that will make you change your mind and appeal to any champagne enthusiast who was too quick to put this off as utterly feminine and without depth. Plays on your tongue with an awfully charming aftertaste.

Light strawberry nose. Pink melon and strawberry with some jolly rancher notes. There's some really nice fruit and some nice biscuit there too. Overall a very fragrant, floral yet delicate champagne, not too brut.
Light biscuit nose, light mousse, floral but faint and light, not very acidic, very approachable actually
One of the most refreshing Champagne's I have ever had. Crisp, clean, sweet, it cleanses the palat very well with its subtle citrus, apricot and biscuit taste. Expensive, but just about worth the price.
Nice clean Champagne with just a hint of sourness right at the end.
Very easy drinking Champagne. Floral tones but overall too weak & light. Lacks complexity & character. I like it but it's not like I really like it. Some exotic fruit tones , slightly oak aftertaste and a little bread on the nose, that's why it's 3.
External Reviews for Champagne Taittinger Taittinger Prestige Brut Rosé
A wonderful rosé cuvée with nice berry-like Pinot Noir flavors and generous toastiness. From a winery known for its delicate, intricate style.
Perfect for any celebration with nice red berries and a softness on the end of the palate
Bright, clear pink color, with an aggressive mousse. Vibrant nose offers a wide range of red berry aromas, along with floral notes of jasmine and magnolia blossom. Silky and light on the palate, the red berry fruit enhanced by suave baking spices and tangy mineral notes. This is a classic rendition of consistently fine ros Champagne, displaying finesse and haunting perfume.(Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar)

A berry- and citrus-infused Champagne, elegant and vividly structured, with a lingering, fresh candied fruit finish. Drink now. (BS) Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Taittinger Brut Prestige Rose 750ml
Composition: Taittinger Brut Réserve is a blend of Chardonnay wines (40%) and Pinot wines (60%) from 40 different vineyards and matured to perfection. Such a high proportion of Chardonnay is seldom found among the great champagnes. Tasting: The colour is brilliant, golden straw yellow. The bubbles are fine. The mousse is both discreet and persistent. The nose: Very expressive and open, is both fruity and bready. It exudes aromas of peach, white flowers (may blossom, acacia and vanilla pod). On the palate, this lively fresh wine is at once in harmony. This is a delicate wine with flavours of fresh fruit and honey. In all a wine blessed with well-developed aromatic potential. It is aged for three to four years in the cellars where it achieves perfect maturity. Drinking suggestions: It can be drunk as an aperitif or with food, preferably with an evening meal. It is a perfect accompaniment to white meat, lamb with chanterelles, crayfish and mushroom quiche. Profile A wine of great charm, combining the power of Body and the intelligence of Spirit.
This is elegant and harmonious, offering vanilla, graphite and toast aromas and flavors. The texture is refined, and this builds to a long, coffee- and pastry-tinged finish. Drink now through 2010. 320 cases imported. Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Taittinger Prelude 750ml
