There's a smoky underpinning to this firm ros, with the lively bead carrying delicate flavors of white raspberry, toast, orange peel and ground ginger. Madame Clicquot created the first blended Rosé in 1818 by adding some red wine to Yellow Label Champagne. The blend of 44/48% Pinot Noir, 25/29% Chardonnay, 13/18% Pinot Meunier create the base of the Yellow Label which is then blended with 12% of red wine specially raised to give balance. Coppery-orange in color, vinous palate, and expressive aromas of very ripe wild strawberries define the experience. Shop Now

2000 Dom Perignon Luminous Rosé 1.5 L
Wally's price: $999.99
96 points - Wine Advocate
Wine Advocate Notes: The 2000 Dom Perignon Rose is a flashy, ripe Champagne that screams Pinot to a degree I have never encountered in another vintage of this wine. A dark, intense color leads to a Chambolle-like nose followed by endless red berries, flowers and spices, all backed up with plenty of muscle, richness and density. The wine continues to blossom on the palate, with utterly beguiling detail, clarity and polish, all qualities that resonate on the rich, expansive finish. The 2000 Dom Perignon Rose is 45% Chardonnay and 55% Pinot Noir, of which 25% is still Pinot. Geoffroy says his goal was to make a statement with the 2000 Dom Perignon Rose; he has done that and so much more. In fact, the 2000 seems to signal a stylistic shift towards a more important, serious style of rose. Behind the screaming label of this edition, the bottle holds a superb wine that demands serious attention for whoever tries to grasp the marvelous complexity. And the Magnum format allows to be engaged in such a journey with friends. This superb wine is not to be missed. Shop Now
