Piper-Heidsieck Brut Rose Sauvage Champagne

Reims, France


$47-$65 retail

For Valentine's Day, many Champagne lovers look for delicious rose wines that pair well with food. This jewel is a beautifully hued blend of 55 percent Pinot Noir, 30 percent Pinot Meunier and 15 percent Chardonnay. It is aged more than 30 months in Piper-Heidsieck's cellars. Both elegant and playful, the Brut Sauvage offers aromas of plum, tart cherry, strawberry, cranberry, citrus and mineral notes. On the palate, taste bone dry expressions of plump red berries and blood orange with toasty notes and a well balanced finish. Drink it as an aperitif with hors d'oeuvres or caviar or with salmon, light meats or desserts. Buy it at: The Wine Seller, Whole Foods Markets, most Rouses and Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket. Drink it at: W Hotel's Whiskey Blue and Living Room bar. — Brenda Maitland
