Read Decanter's tasting note for Louis Roederer, Cristal, Champagne 2002
Taittinger, Comtes de Champagne, Reims 2002
Though very dumb when tasted soon after disgorgement, just three months later you could already taste the grandeur and concentration. There were just 35,000 bottles made in this vintage, 100,000 fewer than normal, so there will be fighting over these dense, lime-scented beauties when the wine finally awakens.
