The distinctive qualities of each parcel are the result of great respect for nature. Louis Roederer’s philosophy is shared by Philippe Starck: both are engaged in a quest for authenticity.   The harvest from each parcel is pressed and vinified separately. Over the months, the wine is tasted and analysed by the oenologists; this provides them with an extensive aromatic palette that gives them a rich choice and enables them to develop blends under the watchful eye of the Cellar Master, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. This quest for authenticity matches Philippe Starck’s desire to collaborate on the development of a unique, finely tuned, and authentic cuvée. They decided to draw inspiration from river wines to create a straightforward, medium-dry, terroir-based champagne. Consequently, every measure was taken on the south-facing parcels of Pinot noir to nurture grapes that would attain great maturity, in order to obtain an excellent fruit that would require very minor corrective measures.

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.

o.k. great as well compared to the 99' however not the same mojo. i would say a gravel taste in the palette hinting at it's dryness but still an outstanding brut

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

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.

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.

Wine Tasting NotesColor: Fine, regular bubbles, with a very persistent bead.Nose: Intense, fresh and very precise. The bouquet ranges across the entire spectrum of complex flavors, opening with scents of red berries (cherry), crystallized citrus peel and lightly roasted nuts, which after a few minutes airing in the glass is followed by aromas of ageing, such as almond and honey.Palate: An admirably rounded attack brings further proof of the intensity of aroma that is typical of the 2000 vintage. Scents of white flowers mingle with flavors of red berries, caramel and upside-down apple tart. The texture on the front palate has all the roundness, generosity and refinement that is expected of Louis Roederer. The supporting structure is vinous but not overly robust, with a delightful freshness that underscores the wines precision while creating an impression of lasting finesse.Overall assessment: A lush, refined and precise winemoderately powerful, exceptionally seductive and entirely characteristic of this classically ripe vintage.
