2012 Louis Roederer Champagne Cristal Brut Rose$499.99
Cristal has been at the forefront of Rose Champagne since its creation in 1974. The smaller, family owned production is noticeable where the quality is of the upmost importance. Having tasted vintages back to the 80s there's no doubt in our minds that Cristal makes the most outstanding Rose. The 2012 vintage is following is tall predecessors’ footsteps making the best of the vintage’s excellent quality of Pinot Noir (60% here) and is quite generous in its youth yet has the structure for a very long life. As Good as it gets for Rose and for the Champagne heads out there, not one to pass up. Quantity is very limited so act quickly for a shot at this already legendary Champagne.
