Veuve Clicquot, Ponsardin Brut Rosé Réserve 2000

62% PN, 15% Chardonnay, 8% Meunier, 15% still red from Bouzy. The fruit is sourced from twenty different premier and grand cru villages, including Ay and Verzenay for the PN and Mesnil-sur-Oger for the Chardonnay.

Copper pink.  Toasted and broad, sweet butter and a whirligig of fruits.  Spring greens offer counterpoint, gelée-like in texture and the finish is spicy, unfurling flavors of ginger, cardamom and candied violets.  Now.
