The most recent release of a vintage Rosé from Henriot expresses full-flavored and vibrant red ripe berries aromas. A wine perfect for an impromptu moment or as real partner for any dish that would benefit from a red and black berry pairing. -Laurent Jaubert, Wally’s Champagne Buyer

Created as a tribute for the trailblazing woman that is Madame Clicquot, the respected tete de cuvée from Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin showcases the generosity of the 2008 vintage. -Laurent Jaubert, Wally’s Champagne Buyer

3. 2008 Cristal

98+ Points - Vinous

We are lucky to be able to get access to this close-to-perfect Champagne. After more than ten years, it is one of the most balanced Champagne out there with a great history to support it. -Laurent Jaubert, Wally’s Champagne Buyer

2. MOD Selection Rose

Wally's price: $450

Exclusive bottling made by a house that dates back to the 1890s, this wine is remarkable in its purity, finesse and elegance. -Laurent Jaubert, Wally’s Champagne Buyer

1. 2008 Dom Perignon X Lenny Kravitz Edition Brut

Wally's price: $225

98+ - Vinous

The 2008 Dom Prignon is fabulous, but quite remarkably, it was even more open when I tasted it a year ago. Bright, focused and crystalline in its precision, the 2008 is going to need a number of years before it is at its best. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the 2008 its chiseled, bright profile. Several recent bottles have all been magnificent. – Vinous
