 The Taittinger 2005 Brut Rose Comtes de Champagne exhibits a delectable nose of fraise du bois, red raspberry and maraschino discreetly complemented by anise, vanilla, and Ceylon tea. Silken in feel and with exceptionally fine and at once stimulating and caressing mousse, this finishes with luscious abundance of juicy fresh red berries supported by appropriate sweetness, hints of fine, tea-like tannins, crunchy berry seeds, chalk and toasted almond serving for satisfying counterpoint. It should prove rewarding to follow for several years, but don’t miss out on its youthful pleasures! DAVID SCHILDKNECHT

 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. Disgorged 2012? Mid orangey pink, a little darker than the Taittinger NV rosé. So inviting on the nose, great depth and a sense of greatness to come. Hard to explain how it sets up this expectation. Deep and a little yeasty. Power and refinement and excellent persistence with fine mousse. Really shines in this line up. So fresh and youthful.
