Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin Rose NV Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Beautiful pale pink color
Nose of roses, cranberries, and nuts
Crisp, lively core
Nutty finish, with granny smith apples


Every once in a while, it's nice to enjoy a really good bubbly. I'm not a raving fan of fine Champagne, but I appreciate it's qualities like the endless, tight streams of bubbles and the nutty flavors that often compliment the fruit.

This wine is a real treat. It's polished; there's nothing harsh or out of balance. These qualities come with a price tag, though. In this case, I paid $50 for the bottle on sale. Raise a glass!
