1993 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Vibrant, elegant, spicy aromas of orange peel, mace, nutmeg and ground horseradish. Brisk, steely and firm, but expands inexorably to fill the mouth. Strong in extract but quite light on its feet. A sinewy Champagne, and strong for the vintage. Very long and very fine on the finish. 91(+?) points
Fine example of the vintage, with clean fruit flavors, plenty of depth, great balance and a soothing array of fine bubbles.
