Cristal Vinothèque: The ultimate luxury fizz?

Peter Liem tastes the new Cristal Vinothèque 1999 wines and looks at how this iconic and luxury Champagne came to be...

One of the most recognisable wines in the world, Louis Roederer’s Cristal is well-known as a symbol of luxury and status, yet it’s also one of the greatest Champagnes being made today, and its true merits as a wine are often overlooked. Unlike most of Champagne’s famous prestige cuvées, Cristal comes exclusively from vineyards owned by the house, which allows Roederer to craft a highly specific character for the cuvée, with maximum control over its viticulture.
