Jancis Robinson: Aromatic and quite floral. Big and introvert, still needs more time on lees. They are busy changing things. Only about 10% of the volume of the Comtes Blanc de Blancs is made.

Taittinger's 2008 Brut Comtes de Champagne Rosé, 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 Rosé 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.

harmonious rosé, seamlessly knitting a vivid spine of acidity and a streak of salinity with a fine, satiny mousse and flavors of wild strawberry, blood orange sorbet, pickled ginger and toast point. The lingering finish shows accents of dried thyme, smoke and graphite. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
