Last year, we mentioned the debut of Beau Joie, the copper-encased champagne brand that made its world debut in Las Vegas in 2010. The brand is now expanding into Rosé (shown above on the right with its older sibling). The new bubbly is made from 50 % Pinot Noir and 50 % Chardonnay naturally derived from the finest grapes of Epernay, France. The Beau Joie Rosé has a crisp and fruity taste and like the Brut, it comes in a copper armored bottle. The Rosé's bottle features over 60 hand-applied rivets and the rose color peeks between the spaces. It's not just pretty, it's a little green, the encasing is created from second-generation copper scrap and the brand has activated a recycling program with venues so that each bottle's encasing can be further reprocessed. The copper also keeps it colder longer and provides a firmer grip while the bottle's rubber punt provides improved stability. The Beau Rosé is available in the U.S. just in time for Valentine's Day in many markets. Suggested retail is $125 to $135.
