Ruinart Brut Rose Champagne (750ml)
From the oldest shipper of bubbly Champagne, this is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay entirely from grand and premier cru vineyards. About 18% of the Pinot is vinified red and blended in for the color and rosé flavor. It has a dark color--almost like blood orange juice--and a soft, full bodied texture. It is rich and satisfying, despite the deceptively high proportion of Chardonnay.
