Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2006

$239.99

The legendary Cristal Champagne now available for a limited time.  Treat yourself to one of the world's highest-rated and best Champagnes made.100 Points Wine & Spirits: "If a wine could ever make you want to pull the top down on your '68 Ferrari convertible, rip off the rearview mirror and take off, this is it. It has a different kind of energy than the '02 Cristal, which is more ethereal, like strawberries at the right hand of some ancient Gallic god. This is more insolent, brash, earth bound. All the scents and flavors seem to emanate frm limestone, as does the acidity, which hits at the front of the mouth and powers through the wine with the kind of solar energy that lifts mist off the white chalk on a cool morning in Cramant. The wine goes on for miles. It's already irresistible, and will only improve with ten, 20, 30 and 40 years of age." 98 Points Wine Enthusiast: "...an exceptional wine..."96 Points Robert Parker: "This is a wine of incredible finesse, length and balance that promises to develop beautifully over the next several decades."

There’s red fruit in this (raspberry) and some delicate floral notes. A sweetness with underlying steeliness. Very good.

This is gorgeous. Honeyed at the edges with great minerality, complexity and a long finish. Sweet and delicious.

Celebrating with my boys in Pittsburgh. Great moments... Nose displays yeast, slightly musty and soft oak. Palate shows lemon citrus, pears with hints of honey. This is awkward as the wine is declining. Finishes bone-dry. Get after these now.
