Valentine’s Champagne


If you’re seeking some fizz for your romantic weekend, wine writer Nick Passmore suggests the Veuve Clicquot Rare Vintage Rosé 1985 for $120. “Time has turned the bright pink of normal rosé to pale copper. And the flavor? It simply astounds: soft and round, with absolutely no sharp edges, a complex melody of mushroomy, earthy elements combined with that well-toasted-bread character that Champagne acquires with time.” Pricey, but sexy.
