2000 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

SKU #1026407 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark ...on first tasting this was delightfully sensual, seductively mellow and silkily replete with honey-toffee notes. At that stage the fruit was young and bursting with energy, with tones of spring flowers, gooseberries, papaya, redcurrants, pineapple and mango. (RJ) Inner quote mark

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From a difficult vintage with destructive hailstorms and botrytis, the 2000 Cristal opens with an elegant and delicate bouquet with brioche, ripe apple, green olive and iodine aromas. Complex and very salty, with oyster and umami flavors, this is a generous and very long Cristal that is excellent with Japanese food, such as sashimi for example, as chef de cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon said during the tasting in New York in November 2018. (SR) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Riper and richer than the 2002 Cristal, this wine has a substantial structure to hold its sensuous, pearlike fruit in place. Tropical notes of guava contribute to the vinous impression, as does the foresty mushroom savor. Haute couture to drink now, this will develop deeper complexities with age. Inner quote mark (12/2008)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Quite an opulent nose. Lovely stage of evolution. Beautifully dense and tightly laced. Very complex and layered. Admirably persistent. This would be a great Cristal to drink now. Smoky. 18.5/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (8/2017)
