Charles Heidsieck 1996 Brut Rosé (Champagne)

Not a saigné, but made instead by blending in 5–7% red wine, this rosé is Heidsieck's first since 1985. With its beautiful salmon-copper color and dried-cherry aromas, it was worth the wait. Earthy, dusty flavors envelop its sturdy white-cherry frame, which holds on tight through the lingering finish. Still young, and a little closed; will show its best after 2008.
