Top 10 Sparkling Wines of 2012 Holiday Season

8. Laurent-Perrier Champagne Blend Champagne Cuvée Rosé Brut (2002)

« Prev Next » 8 of 10
Average price: $59.89 from 13 stores
This is fine and firm on the nose with chalky aromas, spicy floral and honey notes and a base of spicy, nutty almost meaty notes. This has knife edge balance with rich lemon, almond and apricot flavors early on and a really seductive interplay of acid and sweetness. From the nervous front this flows into a creamy and deeply leesy back end full of subtle cheesy complexity with faint hints of toasty spice. Finishing crisply and firmly if a touch subtle with lemon and mineral flavors, this is a beautiful expression of Champagne. 93pts
