Heidi, Spencer, YSL and Cristal


Louis Roederer Cristal Brut

Okay, I know that these two reality show love birds get too much attention as it is, but I just could not help myself when I saw recent photos of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt of The Hills celebrating Heidi’s 22nd birthday. In these photos which you can see here, they are sprawled out on the grass having an oh so lovely picnic in Pacific Palisades with mylar balloons, red roses, willow style picnic basket…the whole nine yards.

I certainly appreciated the Yves Saint Laurent black ankle booties and diamond earrings that Spencer gave to Heidi in these photos, but what immediately caught my eye was the bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne that was leaning on Spencer’s leg right beside them.

Being a champagne lover, I’d have to say that I do get that sparkle in my eye when I enjoy an exceptionally nice bottle of French Champagne such as Krug, Dom Perignon, or Cristal. As for Louis Roederer’s Cristal, its birth was in 1876 while it became available for public purchase in 1945. Approximately 30 years later, the Rosé version of Cristal became available to the public. The Cristal Rosé has slightly more pinot noir than chardonnay and a dash of red wine for color. The average retail price for Cristal is around $250-$375 but can fetch in as much as $700 or more at higher end nightclubs and lounges.

So all I have to say is that as much as you all love to hate on Spencer and Heidi, they do have some nice taste for French bubbly and French shoes.
