We took huge pleasure over the holidays with opening and sharing the base model sparkling from Luxembourg. For a while, Everything Wine had the rosé as well, at about six dollars more. It is juicy, it has the red currant and sweet plum sauce tangents of a decent Pinot Noir rosé, there is some decent minerality, the fizz is so-so, but despite the pluses we were non-plussed. It simply didn’t have the fun and flair and conviviality of the base model. It seemed more like a novelty wine then something either serious or cheerful.
Price: Around $25 before taxes. You can find it at the Liquor Barn locations if you must.
Market Liquidity: Like MC Hammer pants, a curiosity not in our rotation.
