About the Champagne
This cracking rosé Vintage Champagne from Taittinger is produced in France's Champagne region. Available in 75cl bottles, distributed in the UK by Hatch Mansfield. Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Brut Rosé is a mouth-watering wine, made with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.

Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.
- Green Apple
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
Champagne Taittinger’s origins date back to 1734 with the founding of the original House. Pierre Taittinger acquired the House in the early 1930's. He had spent time in the Champagne region when serving in the 1st WW. Stationed at the Château de la Marquetterie, he fell in love with the property and eventually purchased the company. Today, the Reims-based House remains owned and actively managed by the Taittinger family. Following Pierre's retirement in 2019, his daughter Vitalie and son Clovis head up sales & marketing and operations respectively.
With many Houses buying all their fruit from growers, Taittinger’s own vineyards (extending to 288ha) supply 50% of its needs and stretch across ten Grands Crus.Chardonnay accounts for 40% of Taittinger’s plantings, compared with 27% for the whole appellation). Taittinger’s winemaking facilities are located in Reims, but it’s their 4th Century Roman cellars, which were awarded UNESCO status in 2015, that form the heart.
An area to the east of Paris famed for its sparkling wines made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. As many as 50 wines made from different grapes are used to construct a single wine.Explore France
