Taittinger : Comtes de Champagne Rose 2007

The structure and purity of a very rare rosé champagne in an exceptional vintage

The producer

The history of the Taittinger Champagne House began in the early 20th century. Ran by Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger and his two children, Clovis and Vitalie, the Taittinger House has managed to preserve its family spirit by producing champagnes that are resolutely Chardonnay in style. Since January 1st 2020, Vitalie Taittinger is the President of the Taittinger Champagne House.

The vineyard

The vineyards owned by the Taittinger Champagne House spread across 288 hectares of vines and include 37 different crus. This makes Taittinger the third largest vineyard in Champagne. The entire vineyard bears a High Environmental Value certificate.

The wine

An exceptional Champagne, Comtes de Champagne Rosé by Taittinger is only produced during the finest years. In order to declare a Comtes de Champagne Rosé vintage, the harvest must meet very strict quality-related criteria regarding both the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Comtes de Champagne Rosé is the rarest of the Taittinger House's champagnes and is poised among the elite of the world's greatest vintages. The dancer-choreographer Rudolf Nureyev used to say "when I drink Comtes de Champagne Rosé, I don't dance anymore, I fly...".

The vintage

An exceptional vintage, a perfect maturity, 2007 stands out by its incredible liveliness, its vinous structure, its finesse and its saline freshness.

Vinification and ageing

15% of the Bouzy Pinots were vinified as red wines with a long fermentation maceration. This stage gave the wines a beautiful structure and intense fruit aromas. Taittinger's Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007 was aged for over 10 years in the beautiful Gallo-Roman chalk pits of Saint-Nicaise in order to develop the full complexity of its aromas.

The blend

Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007 by Taittinger is a blend of Pinot Noir from the Grands Crus of the Montagne de Reims (70%) and Chardonnay from the most prestigious terroirs of the Côte de Blancs (30%).

The tasting

Colour

This rare vintage rosé champagne seduces the eye with its salmon colour and copper highlights, highlighting the fine, linguering bubbles.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This bottle of Taittinger's just-released 2007 Brut Comtes de Champagne Rosé was disgorged in December 2018, and it's showing brilliantly, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet of blood orange, minty raspberries, red plums, dried flowers and warm brioche. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, chalky and tensile, sharing a racy, chiseled profile with its Blanc de Blancs cousin. Deep, concentrated and tightly wound, the wine concludes with a long, sapid finish. This is an intense, racy Comtes Rosé with a long future ahead of it. As has been the norm chez Taittinger for several years now, the blend is based upon 70% Pinot Noir and includes 15% still red wine from Bouzy.
