Moncharm | Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rose 2005
This amazing champagne is delightful right from the first sniff and satisfies all the expectations of Moncharm. It is a grand effort which very lively with an explosion of fruity cherry notes interlaced in the toasty and creamy aromas. The palate is perfectly formed with persistent bubbles that compliments its fine balance and an elegant bouquet. The endless finish is exceptionally delightful.
The House of Taittinger only came into existence in 1932, prior to which it was known as Forest-Fourneaux, founded by textile merchant Jacques Fourneaux. In 1820, the family partnered with Antoine Forest, giving birth to the previous name, and a brand that sold its produce under names other than the usual champagne (vins d’Aÿ, vins de Bouzy). Now known as one of the best champagnes in the world, Taittinger’s wines are not to be missed.
The Champagne region is best known for its sparkling white wine namesake, a beautifully complex drink with fresh and fruity characteristics. Characterized by chalk subsoil and cool temperatures which give the wine its distinct flavor and acidity, the most grown grapes here include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
