    A pink-copper-gold color with a smoky Burgundian nose of delicate red fruits. A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from six grand cru sites, with 14% Pinot Noir red wine from the Clos Colin vineyard, this is the Chambolle of Champagne. Great with duck.

    The 2008 Brut Rosé La Grande Dame is also showing well, wafting from the glass with notes of red berries, warm spices, toasted brioche and citrus rind. Full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it's a vinous, muscular wine like its white sibling, with a lively spine of acidity and delicately phenolic back-end grip.

    There's a racy tension here, with vivid acidity and an underlying streak of minerality, yet this is elegant overall, with a finely detailed mousse and well-meshed flavors of ripe raspberry, nectarine, Earl Grey tea and biscuit. Offers a long, chalk-tinged finish.

    Veuve Clicquot's prestige cuvée is a ripe, mature wine. With toastiness coming from soft fruit and a rich textured character, it is a classic of this producer's ripe style. The wine's acidity and crisp edge make a good contrast to the full-bodied character.
