The Wine:
FRANÇOIS LABET Rosé, Crémant de Bourgogne, NV ($14.99)
From the owner of Ch. de la Tour in Clos Vougeot comes this methode champenoise Rosé sparkler made from 100% Pinot Noir grown in Burgundy.    Copper-pink in color, fully sparkling; just off of dry, medium-light-bodied with fresh acidity and very light phenolics.  Offers red fruit (strawberry-cherry-raspberry) with enough citrus to keep it fresh and focused. Due to the addition of a bit of red Pinot Noir (for color), it has more earth and richness to go with its fruit and subtle toast notes. BearScore: 89+.
