If you're blue, time to get into some pink

THIS week's wine -- Veuve Clicquot -- was recommended as a Valentine's Day drop, for it's alluring pink color and some very smart packaging.

This time, I'm suggesting you try the drop for it being a very well-made wine.

Champagne has always been viewed as a celebratory drink and the marketing behind it is phenomenal; these recession days, however, are much tougher and darker and not many are looking to celebrate.

Every cloud has its silver lining though, and there's no point crying doom and gloom forever.

Sometimes all it takes is a moment of pleasure to sooth the soul and rejuvenate the senses, and all of a sudden the challenge of the hard day's work seems that little bit easier.

This Rose is the maison's first, and after years of anticipation, is finally available on the Chinese mainland. Made from 50 to 60 different crus, the 50-55 percent pinot noir, 15-20 percent pinot meunier and 28-33 percent chardonnay blend is made with a high percentage of reserve wines (as much as 40 percent).

This means the house taps into the library of its reserve wines to ensure consistency of the house style.

Non-vintage wines work to delete the effects of the year.

When the Rose is lined up alongside the Yellow Label, the rich, firm and fruity pink wine offers a food-friendly Champagne that goes wonderfully with dishes like beef carpaccio.

A wine to cheer you and your friends up, and to look effortlessly stylish doing so.
