$24 Retail

Scharffenberger Brut Rose is made from 54 percent pinot noir and 46 percent chardonnay in the methode traditionnelle (Champagne) process. Such wines are individually bottle-fermented before being riddled and disgorged — the steps used to remove the lees, or residual yeasts from fermentation. This wine is both elegant and playful. In the glass, a lovely effervescence presents aromas of wild strawberry, peach, raspberry jam and pie pastry. On the palate, taste watermelon, red berry, lime and mineral notes. Enjoy it as an aperitif or with light hors d'oeuvres, egg dishes, grilled salmon, melon, glazed ham, salads, roasted fowl, leg of lamb, spring vegetables, mild cheeses and desserts. Buy it at: Martin Wine Cellars. Drink it at: Mr. B's Bistro and Cafe Lynn.
