Originally vinted in 1809 for Tsar Alexander II of Russia, 200 years later it is still the ultimate Champagne; an icon of luxury, style and taste. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 98 points saying "This is an exceptional wine, as is the vintage. The fruits—grapefruit, crisp red apple—balance with a fine yeasty character. There is a great depth of flavor, the fruits going in a pure line of freshness.” But Wine & Spirits Magazine was overwhelmed, granting it a perfect 100 point score , and culminating their rave review with "It's already irresistible, and will only improve with ten, 20, 30 and 40 years of age." Very Limited! All Champagne orders require 3-5 days processing. No express delivery available on Champagne.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 98The purity of this wine is impressive. It has a straight line of mineral, flint and grapefruit running through it. Around this, there are layers of fresh apples, lime zest and a tight, taunt structure. Give it 4-5 years.Wine Tasting NotesAppearance: Brilliant yellow with light amber highlights. A beautiful mousse with fine cordon of persistent and regular bubbles.Nose: Intense and delicate. Revealing a clean and well-blended mixture of flavours of honey, cocoa, lightly toasted hazelnuts, candied citrus fruit without exuberance, but luxurious simplicity!Palate: A savoury explosion of ripe fruit on the attack, revealing red fruit, white chocolate, caramel and Danish pastry, typical of Cristal. Silky, concentrated texture, leaning on intense, powerful and vinous structure, but maintaining refinement. The palate builds up to attain a delicious sensation of well-blended harmony of flavours. A fresh finish with a hint of bitterness making it almost crunchy.All the exceptional characteristics of the 2002 vintage have literally been captured in this 2002 Cristal, which is generous and lush, revealing perfect balance between concentration and finesse, freshness and vinosity, intensity and refinement. In three words: proud, rich and luxurious.
Roederer's 2002 Cristal is still in its infant, fresh stage. Subtle notes of pears, flowers, spices, mint, minerals and oak are woven into a cashmere-like frame of extraordinary grace and elegance. This beautifully-sculpted Champagne possesses notabl... Robert Parker. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 2002 Roederer, Louis Cristal 750ml

Cristal is produced in accordance with strict production criteria. Vinified and aged in oak Cristal shows a delicate vinosity. Assemblage: 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay
Wine Advocate #162 (Dec 2005) 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.
