Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007
The light rust and amber color is enticing. Aromas of dried rose petals, cinnamon and nutmeg. Hints of dried meat, smoke and sage. Full body and compact, creamy texture. So fine and delicious. Great, subtle and complex flavors. More like a lightly aged, premier cru Volnay, but with the magic of Champagne. Drink now.

The 2007 Comtes de Champagne Rosé is a total knock-out. Racy and exuberant in the glass, the 2007 wraps around the palate with stunning textural depth and resonance. The 15% still Pinot adds structure and persistence to a creamy, inviting Rosé Champagne that will leave readers weak at the knees. Hints of rose petal, dried cherry, cinnamon and dried flowers meld into the sublime finish. This is about as good as it gets. Wow!

Pale salmon in colour with a lively mousse. Bright wild straberries, toasted pastries and fresh bread on the nose here. The palate is juicy, fleshy with red fruits and ripe, waxy citrus. The mousse is generous and creamy, giving a generosity and soft edge despite the fresh acidity coursing through the palate. The autolytic character builds through to the finish, leaving a complex, savoury undertone to the bright fruit at the core.
