Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
A rose champagne for the serious champagne lover. The color is salmon pink, tending toward cherry. A generous, assertive bouquet redolent of small red fruit, with just a hint of spiciness, progresses into a dry, elegant flavor that is fresh and lively, delicate and yet intense. A rose champagne with immense personality.
"Bright pink. Intense, spice-accented aromas of dried red fruits, blood orange, cinnamon and minerals, with a subtle note of anise. Dry and precise but fleshy, with very good depth to its tangy redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors. A refreshing jolt of orange zest adds bite to the long, juicy and focused finish. I really like the blend of power and vivacity here."
International Wine Cellar
"Juicy red fruit flavors of fresh strawberries and cream saturate this young wine. The flavors cascade from nuts to fruits, the fruit sweet, the wine savory and bright. A superrich, generous rosé for duck prosciutto."
Wine & Spirits
"It has seemed to us the Rosé Champagnes have been getting both fruitier and darker in color over the past several years, but here is one that recalls a more classic style. It distantly hints at cherries but fixes its focus on minerals and yeast in its aromas, and it follows with a full slate of toasty, champenized traits on the palate. It is explosively foamy but very creamy in feel with a fine lift of brightening acidity lending great length to its finish, and its impressive depth is never dependent on bulk. It is a wine for drinking with meals rather than being quaffed all alone, and it is sure to age effortlessly."
"Complex aromas and flavors of yeast, apple and dried flowers mark this effusive, fresh rosé. Nice weight and balance, with everything in the right proportion."
"Unfortunately I was only able to taste one new wine from Gosset this year. The NV Brut Grand Rose is a big, structured Champagne. This comes across as a touch sweeter than is the norm here, but that just may be a factor of the wine's considerable fruit. All sorts of freshly cut flowers, berries and minerals come together in the glass. The wine gains volume and depth in the glass, showing the many shades of dimension that make it such a great choice for the dinner table. This is Lot L009 7110, disgorged March, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015.

An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But
one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins -
means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method -
