L'addition method is used to make the Prestige Rose 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 Rose its distinctive salmon pink colour. The wine is aged for 3 years. The dosage is similar to the non-vintage. The Taittinger Brut Prestige Rose also has a high proportion of Chardonnay which is synonymous of the Taittinger style.
A delicious, fragrant aperitif, the wine is also a subtle accompaniment to fruit desserts, including fruit tart, fruit salad and red fruit crumble.
