Wine Spectator Review
A lovely Champagne, offering a rich and expressive palate of dried strawberry and white peach fruit, with toasted hazelnut, pastry, candied ginger and lemon curd flavors set in a fine and elegant frame. Long and creamy on the satiny finish. Drink now through 2031.
James Suckling Review
Take Taittinger's prodigious chardonnay and add 15% pinot noir to create this masterful prestige rose that has a mid red hue and plenty of assertive pinot red fruits on the nose. Really impressive aromas of Turkish delight, cherries, chalky minerals and pink grapefruit. The palate has a fine core with some bolder red fruit flavors and pinot noir weight. Really impressive, deep and even, with much to come if you hold for three to five years before drinking.
Wine Enthusiast Review
The lively mousse carries this sophisticated wine, which is the perfect partner to the Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs. Everything is in its place, well integrated and with great precision. This trends to the sweeter side of Brut but with bottle age this has brought fine secondary flavors that are ripe and rich. The wine will age further, drink until 2020.
Wine Advocate Review
Taittinger's 2006 Comtes de Champagne Rose blends Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with 16% red wine, mainly from Bouzy. Lovely, pure and fresh on the nose, with spicy sweet cherry aromas and red berry flavors, this is a rich and potent, full-bodied and firmly structured Rose with nice purity and freshness. The finish reveals a sweet intensity and good length.
Comtes de Champagne Rose is a rich rose color, with touches of violet. The bubbles are extraordinarily fine, rising vigorously in the glass, forming a wonderfully fine necklace of mousse. The nose affirms intense aromas of ripe, sweet fruit, including crystallised strawberries, quince jelly, violet sweets and pears in syrup. There are hints of the cooked fruit aromas of plum tart. The mid-palate confirms the initial aromas of sweet quince jelly, and develops richness with the flavors of fresh figs.
