Description

The Prestige Rose is a particularly muscular and powerful Champagne.

A small percentage (15%) of still red wine from the finest Pinot Noir grown in the estate's Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys vineyards is added to the blend, to lend depth and structure as well as the eye-catching colour.

This is no shrinking violet. It's a Champagne characterised by strength and tannin, and in the context of these apex Champagne houses, it offers excellent value. If rosy bubbles are what you seek, Taittinger is always an excellent option.

95 points
"Taittinger uses tannins rather than sweetness to balance the mouth feel of its rosé. The result is exceedingly sophisticated, bringing a gorgeous tannin texture to a delicately stylish rosé."
- Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide)

Taittinger Prestige Rosé immediately stands out for its intense, shimmering hue whose secret lies in the fact that it is a blend, which is more complex and costly to produce. A quantity of still red wine (15%) produced from the best Pinot Noirs from Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys is in fact added to the final blend, to give this cuvée its unmistakable colour and vibrant intensity on the palate. The high proportion of Chardonnay (30%) that completes the blend brings the elegance and delicacy that underpin Taittinger’s signature style.

95 points - "With the same dosage as Brut Réserve, Taittinger uses tannins rather than sweetness to balance the mouth feel of its rosé. The result is exceedingly sophisticated, bringing a gorgeous tannin texture to a delicately stylish rosé. It's fresh and young with primary rose petal aromas and a lingering, enchanting palate of soft strawberries and exquisite rose petals. A stale 2007 disgorgement had a distinctly copper hue, lacked primary fruit and finished with roast hazelnut bitterness. With such old stock still lingering in warehouses and no way to identify them (there is no indication of disgorgement date on bottles), I can only recommend against purchasing this cuvée until old stock is moved on. This a disappointing situation as fresh examples are stunning." - Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
