'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! Drink 2018-2038.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 97/100

'The Comtes de Champagne Rosé is composed of 30% Chardonnay (Grands Crus from Côtes de Blancs), 70% Pinot Noir (Grands Crus from Montagne de Reims, including 15% Pinot Noir from Bouzy, vinified as red wine). It has strawberry, mint, rose petal and cherry notes on the exuberant nose. The palate is racy and creamy, very compact and fresh, with a delicate salty note on the finish.' – Yohan Castaing, Decanter, 97/100

'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. Drink 2020-2037.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 96/100

'This harmonious rosé Champagne offers quiet grace, with a pleasing juiciness to the sleek acidity, framing finely knit flavors of raspberry, peach, brioche and candied pink grapefruit zest. Showing a raw silk–like texture, this caresses the palate through to the fresh, ginger-laced finish. Drink now through 2027. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.' – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 96/100

'This is the current vintage, just launched. They have gone from five to 12 years on lees. Contains as much as 14–16% red Bouzy wine (long, cold maceration). Quite deep rose gold. Ripe tomato nose. Quite a bit of fine tannin. Edgy and lively. Food wine. Still quite chewy. This was the first year when the white was released before the rosé.' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5+/20

'2007 is a fully matured vintage. Its superb maturity tantalizes all the senses with a deep pink robe highlighted with glints of copper, an extremely delicate persistent effervescence, a nose of crushed strawberries, lime and liquorice underlined by a hint of roast coffee and cacao. The palate is entranced by a variation of gourmet sensations. The fresh, precise and taut attack gives way to reveal a supple, molten and heady structure. The finish imparts fruity notes underscored by a saline freshness. With the purity of its precise, gourmet aromatic structure, the Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2007 is perfectly in line with its predecessors and promises to offer excellent ageing potential.' – Winemaker

Producer information Taittinger dates back to 1734 when the first owner worked with Benedictine monks to learn how to produce sparkling wine. It was only later, in 1932, that Pierre Taittinger acquired the estate and relaunched it under his family name. Taittinger is one of Champagne’s largest producers and is part of the Union des Maisons de Champagne, a syndicate of Champagne houses that includes the likes of Bollinger, Laurent Perrier, Moët & Chandon, and Louis Roederer. Taittinger owns four kilometers of chalk caves (originally dug out by the Romans) and is only one of five Champagne houses who uses them for cellaring.
