Taittinger, Comtes de Champagne Rose 2011

Taittinger

Case Format: 3x75cl

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne is rare. The rosé even more so as it is only made when the vintage has been exceptional and their demanding quality criteria have been met. The Comtes de Champagne Rosé is made of 30% Chardonnay Grands Crus from the most prestigious Côte des Blancs terroirs, combined with 70% Pinot Noir sourced from the Montagne de Reims Grands Crus. This is further enhanced with 12% of red wine from Bouzy Pinots, which is added to the blend before the second fermentation. Left for 12 years on the lees, the long ageing process in the heart of their chalk cellars has allowed this vintage to open itself up with extraordinary energy and ageing potential.

Yohan Castaing

Disgorged in October 2022, the 2011 Brut Comtes de Champagne Rosé is a blend of 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir, including fully 14% of red wine that lends it notable depth of color this year. Evoking aromas of cherries, buttery pastry, raspberries and tangerine, with an attractive minty top note, the bouquet is complex and incipiently spicy. Medium to full-bodied, layered and vinous, with chalky structuring extract, it concludes with a long, sapid finish. The limitations of the vintage mean that this is a giving, rather open-knit Comtes Rosé, but it is nevertheless a great effort in a challenging year and exhibits none of the herbaceous qualities that mar some of the wines produced in this year. Drink it now and over the next decade.
