love to love you, baby

The love between hip-hop and the champagne giant has died...
Jay-Z has vowed to boycott Cristal champagne in both his professional and personal life, following their remarks about the hip-hop world.

Hip-hop and Cristal have long gone hand-in-hand, with several rappers giving shout-outs to the champagne makers in their songs and videos. However, in an interview with The Economist magazine, Cristal boss Frédéric Rouzaud called the hip-hop world’s support “unwanted attention”.

In response, Jay-Z said: "It has come to my attention that the managing director of Cristal, Frederic Rouzaud views the 'hip-hop' culture as 'unwelcome attention'.

"I view his comments as racist and will no longer support any of his products through any of my various brands including The 40/40 Club nor in my personal life."

Then responding to that, Rouzaud said smugly: "I'm sure Dom Perignon or Krug would be delighted to have their business…"

How unnecessary is this smug remark? If JayZ can persuade other rappers to support his boycott, my guess is the viner will lose out on some money. From his remark it sure doesn't seem like he cares.
I personally prefer this bubbly.

over cristal. Yeah, because I drink cristal on a daily basis. Anyway I loved to drink this champagne in college with this yumminess.

I have never tried your fav champagne, almond, HUMMM, sounds yummy. Maybe we need to get some of that for our anniversary celebration getaway. Where can I find it? Now you don't have that with mac and cheese do you? I think you were just saying that was your other "staple" in college. Hee, hee...

You made my day. We were so sassy drinking the almond champagne with organic mac and cheese. Wow - I can't remember the last time I sat on the floor in my kitchen!!

Don't forget about our new favorite Champagne "Segura Viudas" Reserve Heredad. A great cava in a beautiful bottle. I think the winery in Spain was opened by the Chandon brothers.

And to all those fools who only ordered cristal because their "hip hop" icons said it was the appropriate way to display your new money- grow up and develop your own palate!! Discover something you like not because it looks so cool but because you like it- Or you can always get a necklace to hang your car key on while inside the bar!

do what you like -
