It may lack the recognisable packaging of the Laurent-Perrier rosé featured above, but this similarly-priced pink fizz from Comte Audoin de Dampierre delivers just as much flavour, and a delicious chalky citrus character from the high proportion of Chardonnay in the blend – as much as 85% is made from the white grape, with 15% Pinot-based red wine used to give the wine its colour.

    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.)
