Re­mem­ber that warm, dry sum­mer of 2005? Us nei­ther. But this newly re­leased gem of a sparkling rosé from Dom Pérignon will have you toast­ing that by­gone sea­son. On the nose, the Cham­pagne of­fers a dense blend of trop­i­cal fruit and lightly toasted spice, while on the palate, this pink won­der shows the com­plex­ity of its pinot noir- heavy blend, fea­tur­ing what Dom’s head wine­maker, Richard Ge­of­froy, de­scribes as a “brac­ing vi­nos­ity” and fi nish­ing with blood or­ange. De­spite heavy rains that Septem­ber (we don’t re­call those ei­ther), his team “man­aged,” he says, “through dras­tic se­lec­tion, to har­vest grapes of ex­cep­tional qual­ity.“$330, Fine Wine & Good Spir­its, 2040 Mar­ket St., finewine­and­good­spir­ – David Zi­van

The 2005 Dom Pérignon rosé is 55 per­cent pinot noir, 45 per­cent chardon­nay and all de­li­cious. VIN­TAGE CHARMER
