True rose Champagne comes only from the northern French region of the same name. Produced in the same manner as nonrose Champagne, it gets its pink color from the addition of 10 to 15% still red wine, typically added at the end of the winemaking process.
Lighter examples are typically elegant and racy, with delicate strawberry and raspberry fruit. Darker-hued examples typically offer richer red fruit flavors and a softer, rounder texture. A general rule of thumb is the darker the color, the richer the flavors.
