Taittinger Prestige Rosé

If serious celebrations are called for I can't imagine a more appropriate accompaniment than this lovely pink fizz from one of the best Champagne houses. A blend of pinot noir and pinot meunier fruit, it is a wonderfully fresh, fruity and succulent Champagne with persistent mousse, delightful crispness and plenty of length on the palate. Vibrant but elegant, with fresh raspberry characters to the fore, this was one of those wines that seemed to evaporate in the glass. Great for New Year's Eve. $110.
