Die Cuvée Cristal, die fünf Jahre auf der Hefe reift, erfüllt allerstrengste Herstellungskriterien, die eine peinlich genaue Auswahl der Lagen, der Trauben und schließlich der Weine erfordern. Es werden nur Pinot Noir- und die Chardonnay-Trauben der zehn besten Lagen der Weinberge des Hauses Roederer verwendet.

High-toned and floral with hints of coconut and spice. Firm and lively. Needs a little time to integrate and resolve the fine mousse with the tactile finish. More backward and powerful than most 1999s this has potential. Drink now through 2015. 29 000 cases made. Wine Spectator.

Light gold. Vibrant tangy aromas of apple pear white peach and minerals. Wound tight right now only reluctantly offering up flavors of fresh orchard fruits herbs and pepper. Finishes zesty and long. Seems less deep than the 1997 bottling; is this just in a sullen youthful stage? Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Winemaker's 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...98" WA 12/05 "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 ...95" WE 11/06 "The precision of the flavors in this vintage of Cristal is riveting. They feel substantial, complete, youthful and extremely long even as their aromatic intensity remains subtle, layered in scents of fresh apple, brioche and yellow plum. But the integration is such that rather than emphasizing individual elements, the wine brings to mind words like brisk, elegant, refined. A beauty to drink now, though it will have more to offer with age...95" W&S 12/06
