Taittinger Rosé 2011 pricing analysis
*All Taittinger Rosé scores shown are the most recent Wine Advocate scores.
Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2011 has been released and is offered by the international trade at £575 per case. The chart above shows the Market Prices of previous vintages compared to their latest Wine Advocate scores.
While the 2011 vintage is offered at a premium compared to previous ones, buyers seeking alternative options may want to consider the higher-scoring 2009 and 2007 vintages. Both vintages scored 96 points from William Kelley (Wine Advocate). In his tasting note from 2022, he mentioned that the 2009 ‘already offers demonstrative drinking. This has turned out brilliantly’. According to him, the 2007 is ‘deep, concentrated and tightly wound’, adding that the wine ‘concludes with a long, sapid finish’. See more pricing analysis below.
Looking at the graph above, for those seeking value, the 2009 and 2007 vintages offer discounts of 15.2% and 36.1% compared to the latest release respectively. However, it’s worth noting that the 2011 vintage is recommended for earlier consumption, providing a good option for those waiting for their 2009 and 2008 rosé to mature further.
If we look at older vintages, the 2003 and 2006 vintages, despite receiving a lower score of 93 points from the Wine Advocate, might still be of interest. They can be purchased at a discount of 20.6% and 34.8% respectively compared to the 2011 release.
