Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)
Such an elegant, ethereal wine, this orange-pink wine is dry and crisp with fruity raspberry flavor at the fore. This particular bottling could improve for a year, but makes a great food Champagne now.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(roughly 50% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir and 15% pinot meunier; L344234): Light orange. Vibrant strawberry and orange zest aromas are complicated by notes of tea rose, smoky lees and chalky minerals. Bright, incisive red fruit flavors pick up a toasty nuance with air. Fresh, incisive and refreshingly tangy, with impressive finishing clarity and stony persistence.
Finely meshed and elegant, with mouthwatering acidity and a satiny texture carrying the delicate flavors of ripe raspberry, lemon shortbread, chalk and fresh ginger. Offers a clean, minerally finish. Drink now through 2020.

What could be more civilized than treating your guests to an aperitif of rosé Champagne? Elegant and focused with a fine bead, light salmon color, creamy texture, and lingering finish. Champagne always tastes best from magnum!
