Louis Roederer, Brut Cristal Reims 1990

Cristal 1990 #1

Twenty five years on.

63% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay. 3% oak fermentation.  Disgorged June 2006.

Bathed in golden light, she’s a complex and and layered repository of human aspirations.  Flavors resonate with the acoustics of a cathedral, where incomparable opulence walks hand-in-hand with numinous detail.  As the minutes tick away on ’15, a great ’90.  Now – 2020+.
