Read Decanter's tasting note for Louis Roederer, Cristal, Champagne 2002
Louis Roederer, Cristal, Champagne 2002
My expectations were not entirely fulfilled on first tasting. Aristocratic and sublime, of course, but not as full-bodied as regular vintage wine. Retasting it recently, it was wonderfully honeyed and elegant, but be patient for further evolution.
