Tasting Notes

WA98

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 flavors, 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.

WE95

A powerful Cristal, which has all the richness of the 1999 vintage. The aromas of white flowers and cocoa lead to a palate that is rich, intense, concentrated, but restrained. It is already drinkable, but should mature well.

The Winery

Louis Roederer

“A wine or pure pleasure and a sophisticated gastronomic wine, Cristal is both powerful and delicate, combining subtlety and precision.”
- Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon, Cellar Master

Louis Roederer was founded in 1776 but did not receive international recognition until 1876 when champagne satisfied the taste buds of Emperor Tsar Alexander II of Russia. The emperor became the Champagne’s original promoter as he asked for the bottle to be in a flat-bottomed, transparent lead-crystal bottle producing the new brand, Cristal. Their prestigious Cristal is produced only from their exceptional years when the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have attained perfect maturity producing a wine of purity and elegance.

The Rose Cuvee was produced 100 years after the Brut as they wanted to combine the precision of Cristal and the intensity of rose to produce a remarkable wine. Louis Roederer is one of the remaining few family-owned houses in Champagne, and has been producing exemplary wines that deserve a place in your cellar.
