Taittinger 2007 Comtes de Champagne Rosé is a champagne of exceptional quality and complexity. Its delicate, copper-hued reflections elegantly complement the fine, creamy bubbles that dance in the glass. On the nose, it strikes a harmonious balance between indulgence and freshness, offering captivating aromas of raspberry, black cherry, and a touch of lightly stewed peaches and pears. Subtle notes of menthol add to its complexity. The palate experience is nothing short of extraordinary. A precise, finely textured attack gives way to the revelation of a chiseled tannic structure, showcasing the immense power derived from the limestone Grand Crus terroirs that define its origin. This remarkable champagne is held in perfect tension by a superb chalky acidity and exquisite freshness, resulting in a palate that extends with beautiful aromatic purity. The finish is a testament to its finesse, leaving a lasting impression of delicate salinity that lingers on the senses. Taittinger 2007 Comtes de Champagne Rosé is a true masterpiece, a testament to the artistry of its winemaking and the character of its terroir.

Robert Parker - 96 Points

"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."

Antonio Galloni - 94 Points

"The 2007 Comtes de Champagne Rosé is a very pretty wine to drink now and over the next two decades. Soft and inviting, with good energy, the 2007 is impeccable in its balance. Crushed red berry fruit, blood orange, cinnamon, rose petal and mint all meld together in this gracious, mid-weight Rosé from Taittinger. At times, the 2007 is generous, while at other moments, it is more classically austere in bearing. It will be interesting to see where things ultimately settle."
