TASTING NOTES

"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." Pierre Rovani, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #162

"Much deeper, pink colour than the 1996. Very broad, developed nose. Quite meaty on the nose and still delicate on the palate. Quite sensuous, like a feather brushing the palate. Far from aggressive. Actually quite chewy - still quite astringent even if not desperately acid. There's a certain apparent sweetness. Crème patissière notes." JancisRobinson.com
