Product Description

The 2008 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé is an exceptional vintage. It is crafted from 100% Grand Cru vineyards, with Pinot Noir sourced from Bouzy and Chardonnay from Avize, Chouilly, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, and Oger. The blend consists of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, including 12% red wine. The wine undergoes a lengthy lees ageing process of 12 years, resulting in a truly remarkable and mature champagne.

Tasting Notes

Vinous 93

The 2008 Comtes de Champagne Rose is bright, steely and finely chiseled right out of the gate. It shows quite a bit or energy and also more overall tension than the Blanc today. It will be interesting to see how the 2008 ages, and if the fruit ever emerges. I suspect the 2008 will always remain a rather nervous Rose, even if it is quite striking today. Crushed red berry fruit, mint, chalk and white pepper build into a finish supported by bright, salivating acids and plenty of steely minerality. [Antonio Galloni, 30/11/2022]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2038

Robert Parker 96

Taittinger’s 2008 Brut Comtes de Champagne Rose, which arrives on the market this year, has unwound considerably since I last tasted it. Offering up inviting aromas of red berries, plums, sweet spices, orange rind and freshly baked bread, it’s medium to full-bodied, pillowy and vinous, with an ample core of fruit, lively acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse. As I wrote in 2019, Taittinger is using more Pinot Noir and opting for longer sur lattes maturation for this bottling, and the result is that Comtes Rose is becoming a more gastronomic Champagne. Deceptively charming as this 2008 is today, I suspect it will tighten up with a little age on cork. [William Kelley, 21/10/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2035
