Top 10 Rosé Champagnes
The pretty pink rosé Champagnes get their color and bright, bold flavors from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes by one of two processes. In one method, red grapes are pressed and their skins left to soak in the juice before being blended with Chardonnay grapes for a creamy effervescence. The other method adds red wine to the finished Champagne.
Both result in rich flavors of strawberry and raspberry from the red grapes and a creamy mouthfeel from the white. GAYOT's Top 10 Rosé Champagnes range in price from $45 to $90 to suit a variety of budgets.
