Recently, here at K and L, we've received a few unbelievable values in the Champagne department: small production producer/growers making Champagnes that are of the highest quality and rarity here in the states. One of my favorites as of late is the Christian Busin Brut Rosé, which is comprised of mostly Verzenay Grand Cru fruit, predominately Pinot Noir, from the '09 vintage. This wine offers delicate aromas of strawberry and cherry, with a palate that manages to simultaneously be big and creamy, yet chalky and dry.

This is one of the finest deals in rosé Champagne that K&L has ever had. This entirely estate-grown Champagne is based on 2009, and composed of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. It gets its color from Verzenay Pinot Noir that is made into red wine. This is full bodied, complex, rich rosé with a ton of power. If you like characterful, yet well balanced rosé, this is a must at the price.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose.
