    Love is sweet — and so is pink champagne.

    "It pairs with fish, with meat, with dessert. And when you open a bottle of rosé champagne, people understand that you are spoiling them," chef Eric Ripert tells GQ. So toast your loved one with a glassful of one of these on February 14:

    1. Korbel Sweet Rosé, $11

    George M. Taber lists this California variety as one of his favorites in A Toast to Bargain Wines (Scribner, $15).

    2. Collalbrigo Te Amo Rosé NV, $15
    Food & Wine likes this Italian prosecco for its spiciness and drinkability.

    3. Castellroig Brut Rosat Cava, $15
    This Spanish sparkling wine goes with almost anything, says GQ.

    4. Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé, $35
    Forbes.com says that this French bubbly is light, fruity, and "a lot of rosé for the money."

    5. Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé NV, $75
    Looking to splurge? This decadent pick by chef Eric Ripert should top your list.

      These champagnes probably cost a little more today! You could also give personalised pink champagne too as an unusual champagne gift idea with a personal touch.
