Moët & Chandon Nectar Imperial Rose
LCBO 549527, $85.40
With raw oysters brut Champagne is best, but when they’re cooked and smothered in a rich, creamy sauce, off-dry Champagne really comes into its own. This rosé has wonderful red-berry and stone-fruit aromas and flavours and though it’s sweeter than a brut it still refreshes in a delightful way. Excellent length is a bonus and a sign of quality.
