Very full and smooth to the point of being almost...silky. It was quite sweet, actually, and not unlike a very light honey. The word bright comes to mind. While certainly a fantastic champagne, I would not be able to tell the difference in quality between this and a bottle of Dom at half this price.

Louis Roederer Cristal. 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. The 2002 was given a perfect, 100 point score by Wine & Spirits Magazine. About this 2002 they said "Riper and richer than the 2002 Cristal, this wine has a substantial structure to hold its sensuous, pearlike fruit in place. Tropical notes of guava contribute to the vinous impression, as does the foresty mushroom savor. Haute couture to drink now, this will develop deeper complexities with age." Very Limited! This item excluded from any other discounts or offers beyond the 15% case discount.

Wine & Spirits ReviewA glorious, sunny Champagne, the 2000 Cristal weds all of its components into a dynamic sphere,as if the bubbles were the wine itself. The bubbles carry concentrated flavors of redskinned apples, hints of wild strawberry, high notes of apple blossoms and earthier notes of chanterelles. The interplay between the effervecence and the texture feels supple and rich, with a powerful drive that remains discreet. It's an exceptional play on the vintage, transforming its broad ripeness into round elegance.Wine Tasting NotesSustained golden yellow tones shimmering with luminous green highlights and ultra-fine, lively bubbles. An intense, precise but subtle nose. Opens with dominant aromas of fresh almonds and sweet-smelling flowers then revealing riper nuances of lush vine peaches, white chocolate, caramel and a sprinkling of lightly toasted hazelnuts. The attack on the palate is sensual and fleshy with an almost caressing mouthfeel. More mineral notes come through on the mid-palate a testament to this Champagnes deliberately low dosage - supported by a refreshing crispness that carries an impression of delicacy rather than strength. The overall effect is one of precise elegance, a wine perfectly poised between the structure of the Pinot Noir and the finesse of the Chardonnay, marrying roundness and vinosity with a sense of freshness and verve. The finish is long and deliciously refreshing, underscored by harmonious, lightly caramelised notes of the years great wines aged in wood.

This goes for personality and finesse. An assertive honeyed style with plenty of citrus flavors. Mature coffee and roasted nut accents are peeking through with a robust structure and a dried citrus aftertaste. Drink now through 2018. 32 000 cases imported. -BS Wine Spectator.

A steady stream of lustrous gold, cascading into a creamy mousse and a profusion of delicate bubbles. A very fine, very complex, constantly evolving bouquet. Opening notes of ripe, white-fleshed fruits and dried fruits give rise to a melody of white
