Laurent-Perrier Brut Rose (1.5L Magnum)
Rosé from Champagne, France
Made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes from a total of ten 100% rated villages, this champagne gets its glorious pink color and rounded red fruit flavors from a process known as 'saignée', in which the skins of the grapes are left in contact with the juice for three days. Laurent-Perrier's Cuvee Rosé not only makes a delicious aperitif, but is also a good match for a variety of different dishes, particularly puddings.
Alcohol: 12% by volume
"Elegant and fruity at the same time with a quick invitation from bright, pure cherryish notes and then filled out handsomely by whiffs of chalky soils and well-integrated, rich and uplifting yeast-driven scents, this wine manages to be both vigorous and layered at one and the same time. Its bubbles are insistent, finely carved and add to the early sensations of lightness and energy yet also carry the wine long into a balanced, refined finish. And its latter palate grip is exactly what one should expect from the genre. While service with light foods would be our first choice, this one has the beauty to stand alone."
"Deep pink; lush and generous with bright raspberry, tangy acidity and good length; elegant, fresh and long with balance and style. "
"shows fine balance, with a vibrant tanginess to the flavors of black currant, strawberry, licorice and candied ginger. Feature a fine, creamy bead, revealing a lasting note of smoky mineral on the finish. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. "
"Bright orange-pink. Toasty strawberry and raspberry aromas are accented by iodine, floral oils and dusty minerals. Broad and supple in texture, with sappy red berry and blood orange flavors supported by a firm spine of minerality. Finishes spicy, silky and long, with a late rose pastille note adding an exotic twist."

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
