ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Taittinger’s 2004 Brut Rose Comtes de Champagne is a delicate, perfumed wine. In 2004, the Rose shows quite a bit of Chardonnay character in its precise, chiseled fruit and long, minerally finish. After several hours the wine continued to dazzle with its crystalline purity and fabulous balance. This is a jewel of a wine from Taittinger. This is Lot L8357WA04300, disgorged November, 2008 (not indicated on label).

WINE ENTHUSIAST

Wine Enthusiast

A gloriously rich rosé that is full of ripe raspberries that burst in the mouth. It has a tight texture, balanced by a rounded feel. It is still young, of course, and the sweet finish needs time to integrate. Even so, relish the wine now, or wait 3-4 years.

WINE SPECTATOR

Wine Spectator

Displays impressive finesse, centered around the finely detailed texture and well-knit acidity, all of which finds lovely integration with the subtle flavors of spiced plum, white raspberry and biscuit, complemented by a hint of hazelnut. Smoky finish. Drink now through 2024.
