Wine of the Week 

This vibrant, crisp, rosé, a blend of traditional Champagne grapes — Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meuniere — is as ideal for a holiday feast as it is for everyday enjoyment. In the glass, both the delicate effervescence and the pear, apple and soft cherry bouquets tickle the palate. Creamy and luscious, the wine has excellent structure and mouthfeel and lovely red berry-fruit flavors. A great aperitif, this versatile food wine really shines with seafood, shellfish, fowl, light meats and Asian cuisine. Where to buy it: Hopper's Wines & Spirits, The Wine Seller, most Rouses and Winn-Dixies, Dorignac's, Breaux Mart in Jefferson, Martin Wine Cellar in Metairie, Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket and Hugh's Wine Cellar in Mandeville. Where to drink it: Morton's Steakhouse, Sun Ray Grill, Ritz-Carlton, Renaissance Arts Hotel, International House and Marriott Hotel. (Listings current at press time.)
