2006 Taittinger Comtes Rosé

This was a bit of a disappointment. There was no discernible damage. It wasn’t corked or heat damaged. But... it tasted like a $50 rosé, not the giant of quality it should be. I thought my palate might be off, but the ither wine consumed let me know it was not. Very serious, almost Compari-like bitter fruit peels from pink, red, and orange fruits. Strawberry fruits as well. Short finish. I don’t know if I should rate this, but I’ll give it a ‘90. 

Side note: the 2006 Comtes Blanc de Blancs I’ve had several times and has always been wonderful.
