Description

One of the finest Champagnes I have ever brought to my lips, the 1999 Cristal bursts from the glass with fresh hazelnut and apple scents. Elegant, deep, and silky-textured, this medium to full-bodied beauty is immensely concentrated, pure, packed with apple flavours, and astoundingly long in the finish. Louis Roederer does not display a disgorgement date or consumer-friendly lot number on its non-vintage Brut. This is regrettable as it has consistently been one of the finer bottlings in this category. Pierre-Antoine Rovani, Wine Advocate (December 2005)
