For subscribers who are able to defer their patience, yet want to lay away a potentially long-lived Champagne, I highly recommend the Louis Roederer 1990 Cristal, it's awesome! A classic of power and finesse, richness and delicacy, it may be the greatest Cristal I have ever tasted!

Intriguing and complex, with enticing aromas of fig, butter and toast, backed by mouth-filling flavors of pear, cream and apple. Long on the finish, too. Gorgeous, refined and balanced. Drinkable now through 1997.

A paradox. This has weight yet a sensation of weightlessness thanks to its seemless texture and harmony. Still firm and forceful yet elegant, offering citrus, pastry, biscuit and hazelnut notes enmeshed in the creamy texture. Great structure for aging. Drink now through 2015.

Young, clean and restrained. Deep toasty notes well up with time in the glass, but the feeling is that this sparkler will really start to shine in five years. Complex and full-bodied, this venerable house has hit its grand mark once again.

Founded in 1776, Roederer took over in 1833 and began producing some of the world's finest champagne. Toast and vanilla are prevalent in this high class quaff.

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.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
