Louis Roederer, Brut Cristal Reims 1996

Cristal 1996 #1

Twenty years on.

On wings of gold and she’s a stroll through a flowering orchard on a damp evening.  The yellow flavors of ’96, vanilla éclair, heirloom honey. Ladle as much as pour it and the dialogue between swell and focus is riveting.  Liquefied steel and overcome with desire at the end.  A great wine.  Now – 2025+.
