This gives the Prestige Rosé its distinctive salmon pink colour. The wine is aged for 3 years. The dosage is similar to the non-vintage at 9g per litre of cane sugar. The Taittinger Brut Prestige Rosé also has a high proportion of Chardonnay which is synonymous with the Taittinger style.

With its subtle balance of soft red fruits and crisp acidity, this wine is velvety, full-bodied and refined.
