Paul-Etienne Saint Germain, Champagne (France) Rosé NV

($50): The blend — 90 percent Pinot Noir and the remainder Chardonnay — explains the power of this Champagne.  But its appeal is not just its power.  It has depth and most important, impeccable balance.  Nothing seems out of place.  Yes, drink it as an aperitif, but it’s sturdy enough to stand up to a salad Niçoise ladened with grilled rare tuna.
