At a time when French wine is regrouping in the wake of Australia's retail success, it must have come as yet another blow to find that it has just been elbowed out of pole retail position by the United States. This is due largely to the performance of monster Californian brands like Gallo, Echo Falls and Blossom Hill. American rosé is very popular with British consumers, for whom life seems just that little bit sweeter when a dollop of sugar helps the medicine slip down. Not that rosé's success is confined to California. When I popped into Reh Kendermann of Black Tower "fame" in Germany this month, they were ecstatic about the performance of their new Black Tower Rosé, the less said about which the better.

As the wine world's biggest success story, champagne is rarely off the front pages. The latest news is that the region's growers are aiming to extend their vineyards to make it possible to produce an extra 100 million or so bottles a year on top of the 330 million they already make. With demand outpacing supply, it's hardly surprising that its famous houses are not shy when it comes to charging. Last month Krug launched its first blanc de noirs, Krug Clos d'Ambonnay, a champagne that will retail at around £2,000 per bottle (no, I haven't had the sample yet).
