2012 Louis Roederer Et Philippe Starck Rose Brut Nature
Wally's Price: $99
This bone-dry Champagne, conceived by Roederer and designer Philippe Starck, shows fine maturity that balances the tight texture that still comes from the freshest fruits. With this balance and poise this beautiful wine is ready to drink. - Wine Enthusiast

2012 Louis Roederer Cristal
Wally's Price: $300
The 2012 Cristal is another absolutely stellar wine this flight of recent releases. Rich, vinous and beautifully textured, the 2012 has been nothing short of magnificent on the three occasions I have tasted it so far. In the glass, the 2012 is radiant and luscious, yet it possesses remarkable transparency and striking aromatic depth. Light tropical notes develop in the glass, giving the 2012 a real feeling of exotic beauty. The 2012 is the first vintage of Cristal done with 100% organically-farmed fruit, an approach introduced gradually starting with the 2007 that has profoundly changes Cristal, especially in its aromatic breadth. Two thousand twelve is the vintage where endless trials and experiments in farming and winemaking are fully realized. The 2012 is just stunning. It’s as simple as that. Dosage is just over 7 grams per liter, the lowest it has even been for Cristal. - Vinous
