Champagne Taittinger Prestige Rosé NV

Put simply, Taittinger’s flagship rosé Champagne reminds me of a delicious raspberry crumble.

I love this sparkling wine. It’s a ripe pink (likely because it’s been blended with 15% Pinot Noir still red wine) and smells like lightly baked berries on the nose. Is it too early to start thinking about Christmas?

The experience is at first a touch tart, with sharp raspberry fruit, and then there’s strawberries, apples (from the 30% Chardonnay), and a tint of lemon. This rounds off in such a biscuity, mouth-watering way that it’s hard to think of anything but having eaten the most refined of apple and raspberry crumbles.

It’s brilliant.

Serve with…

…crab cakes. As fresh as you can find them, crab cakes make a wonderful match to Taittinger rosé’s fruit.
