2000 Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Millesime

Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage) The 2006 Cristal is one of the most towering, structured young Cristals I can remember tasting. Roederer is among the first, if not the first, major house to release its tete de cuvees. Young Cristal can often deceive with its open, seductive personality, but that is not at all the case here. The 2006 is majestic, powerful Cristal that is going to need bottle age. Today it is massive, tightly coiled and imposing, with tons of structure, phenomenal balance and plenty of potential for the future.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1999 Vintage) The Ultimate Champagne for Toasting successes, this luxurious elixir is highly sought after. Cristal’s signature bottle clearly shows off the lustrous pale gold appearance of this wine. An intensely floral bouquet fragrant with almonds, hazelnuts and wild flowers is complemented by a touch of acidity to mark a finish of elegant persistence. Light and fresh, this is undoubtedly a Champagne of admirable magnitude with time.
