BOTTLE-JEROBOAM: The tiniest from the more whimsically called Champagne bottle sizes, Jeroboam bottle contains 3 liters, or 24 champagne glasses. The label originates from the 1st king of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, who ruled for 22 years during the late 10th century BC. The name means “he increases the people”.
Delicate salmon pink in colour. Its aromas are fresh with wild strawberries and a hint of spice. On the palate this lively, fruity, fresh and elegant wine is balanced and smooth with good length and persistent flavours of crushed wild raspberry, cherry and blackcurrant. Overall, the Prestige Rosé displays charm and subtle harmony of flavours. The fresh fruit flavours make this Champagne the perfect summer aperitif. However, it also goes well with fruit based desserts and selected cheeses.
VINEYARDS: All of Taittinger’s vineyards are managed under the careful eye of Vincent Collard and Christelle Rinvelle, Champagne Taittinger’s highly regarded vineyard manager.
WINEMAKING: L'addition method is used to make the Prestige Rosé to ensure consistency and quality. 85% of the fruit is vinified as white wine and to this is added the other 15% that has been vinified as a red Pinot Noir wine from the best sources in Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys. This gives the Prestige Rosé its distinctive salmon pink colour. The wine is aged for 3 years. The dosage is similar to the non-vintage. The Taittinger Brut Prestige Rosé also has a high proportion of Chardonnay which is synonymous of the Taittinger style.
FOOD MATCH: Grilled and Roasted White Meats. Perfect as an aperitif or with canapés, smoked salmon and oysters.
