2002 Cristal, Louis Roederer

The enthusiasm and commitment to quality in evidence at Maison Louis Roederer is infectious, and stems from outstanding vineyard sites, 95% of which are grand cru and premier cru. Fruit from each village is fermented separately and it is only on completion, following a rigorous selection process, that the final blend is made. The vintage cuvée tends to have a greater dominance of Pinot Noir than the more opulent Cristal which benefits from Chardonnay to create its unique style. Pale gold, with a subtle, but complex nose of white flowers, apple and smoky, toasted biscuit. Although youthful at this stage, the vintage character comes through in the richness and depth of the fruit and is complemented by Cristal’s trademark purity. The finish is long and attractive, with lingering floral and buttered toast characters. Truly excellent Cristal.
