The benchmark quality pink fizz, Laurent-Perrier Rosé both looks and tastes wonderful. Pale salmon pink due to brief skin contact with Pinot Noir grapes, this sparkling rosé is both delicate and richly flavoured. Drinkers can expect an initial rush of red fruit followed by a creamy sensation from the fine bubbles along with a taste of freshly-baked bread. The fizz then finishes with a refreshing redcurrant crunch, cleaning the palate, and ensuring you’ll go back for more.

    not one rose from Spain. What a shame. You guys really don’t know what your doing.

    I am with Karen’s comment above… Not one Sparkling Rose from California, either???
    Come on!
    (The missing representations from Spain/Cava, California and Australia make this a highly subjective assessment.)
