Bollinger France La Grande Année Brut Rosé Champagne 2004, Champagne A.C., France: The 2004 vintage of Bollinger's Brut Rosé La Grande Année is bursting with crisp wild berry notes and toasty richness. There's an attractive core of minerality running through the heart of this much-coveted champagne. This French Rosé both refreshes and titillates the senses. Drink: 2014-2020. 993378 12.50% XD 750 mL  $199.95 Score: 93/100. June 27, 2015 Top Rated Sparkling Wine. Sensational Shellfish Wine Full Review
Veuve Clicquot Non-Vintage Champagne, Champagne A.C., France: This classic, well-known Champagne is a traditional blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. Lime zest, green apple and freshly baked bread aromas on the nose, with a terrific persistence of bubbles on the palate. Try the ultra-shabby chic combo here between French Champagne and a bucket of KFC chicken. Why wait for New Year’s or a wedding before you pop open bubbly when it’s so tasty? The bonus is that it’s just about the best partner for fried food on the planet: it’s mouth-watering acidity and bubbles wash away the fat, making you want more of course. Drink: 2017-2022. 563338 12% D 750 mL  $70.60 Score: 92/100. July 5, 2018 Top Rated Sparkling Wine. Fantastic Fried Chicken Wine Full Review
