This was a slightly advanced bottle missing a bit of verve but delicious none the less. Loads of yellow fruit just missing on the acidity and citrus.

An extraordinary bottle of champagne that is still fresh and vibrant with a fine mousse and delicious aged flavors. Very fine with a complex finish that shows classic sherry notes along with hints of orange rind, chalk minerals and caramel. This got better and better in the glass and I simply could not stop drinking it. What complexity and elegance on the finish. At Rarities, Cafe Boulud.

Very pale, usual active mousse. Delicate, bright, refreshing. A bit of complexity on the citrus flavors. Aperitif style. Dry for Cristal. Very nice but does not scream luxury champagne, needs to fill out.

Nose of lemon peel, fresh hay, and light hay smoke. Showed a sweetness on the palate this evening as it was served along much older wines.

5/19/2015 - Robert Pavlovich Likes this wine: NR

Opened on our anniversary last Thursday. Based on a bottle tasted a couple years ago, I wasn't too excited about this, seemed a little simple then. However, when we opened this, I was pleasantly surprised, a little more complexity and a lot more acidic bite than I had expected. This wine is so clearly not yet at peak, and it's interesting how very evident that is. Normally, with some young CA Cabernet or Burgundy, drinking young has so much intrigue that I really wonder how much better, if it all, the wine will improve or show after 10 or 20 years. With this Cristal, there is some pleasure in drinking it now, but you can hardly swallow the stuff without it trying to climb back out of your throat. Clearly excellent, but demands about 5-10 additional years of cellaring before hitting its prime window.

Good, easy drinking Champagne but not a lot going on here. Can easily find Cremants for less than a quarter of the price that would beat this in a blind tasting. But if you must have the Champagne label, this is a safe bet.

Delicate nose.

Fresh and fruity. Creamy mouthfeel.

Dry, but not overly acidic so can be enjoyed now. No problem.

Medium rich. Fruity. Small autolytic character. Not completely elegant. Alcohol is a bit obvious. Slightly bitter.
As with all Roederer wines, they are slow to develop. This one still has a long life ahead of it.

I had the pleasure of tasting this wine from a magnum bottle. There is some hints of maturity but the acidity is still high and this wine will last for a long time. A very classic Roederer.

Birthday Dinner 2015 (Mitzo): Wonderful. Roederer has been hitting the ball out of the park with the last few vintages of Cristal, and this was another fine example. It had such a nice nose – very appley, but also enlivened by fresh, cirtusy lemon scents, and accompanied by some yeast, a little cream and sweet floral hints. A really pretty bouquet. The palate was absolutely lovely too. It had the typically clean, refined feel of a young Cristal, with a lovely creamy mousse and gently refreshing acidity forming a velvety robe around pure, sweetly fruited flavours of green strawberries and powdery red apple flesh, all infused with a gentle flush of warm spice through into a long, elegant finish. This was so beautifully integrated that it was delicious even in its youth, but it certainly has the balance and depth to age wonderfully for a long time to come. Beautiful stuff – this was really enjoyable. 55% Pinot Noir / 45% Chardonnay

I've said it before, and will say it again. This is a solid champagne, but uninspiring, and better champagnes are out there at more modest prices. Had the 2004 comtes along side with it an this was totally out shined by the comtes.

Very open and welcoming Cristal. Light Apple and pear notes, balanced but surprisingly open and approachable. Not the complexity of the greatest of years and I worry about there being enouh balancing acidity to make this a long term keeper. Certainly drink this before the 02 and 06, but faint praise to say this really and I feel that greater selection would have resulted in a much better wine.

Domestic Cab dinner (Eddie V's): I can actually smell a hint of fresh salmon. Delicate sweet red fruit driven nose, fresh strawberry and raspberry, copper, biscuit, a hint of spice spices and limestone. Medium concentration, fresh delicate sweet red fruit driven palate impression, good acidity and mineral presence and clean medium finish. It is pretty straightforward but still quite enjoyable. Very correct rose champagne.

Leo's Blind Tasting Group - May '15 edition (The Kitchen at Grove): Weird label, but a really lovely wine that I found myself going back to more than any other in the flight. Sweet doughy and brioche flavours up front, and then it turns more tart on the back end with really fresh green apple and pear flavours becoming more dominant on the finish. There's really great focus and balance here, with the acidity keeping it very precise and light on its feet, and each sip invites another.

Nose of pear, chamomile, and iodine. Powerful, floral in the mouth, with zesty acidity and a complex, mineral-driven finish. Drink now through 2025.

Fabulous rosé champagne at just the right age. Very lively, active but not aggressive mousse. Faint pink/orange. Gorgeous fragrance of raspberry and cherry but not overly fruity. On the palate, typical Cristal easiness, a bit low in acidity. Fell apart quickly when it got too warm, so better well chilled. Goes down all too easy.

We had been on the road for quite some time searching for Northcote, a fabulous restaurant in the middle of nowhere, Blackburn, UK. Great sipping 'n snacking were high on our list for a lunch in the countryside. Starting with glasses of a nice, reasonably dry, refreshing bubble was fundamental. Voila, an old friend was pooped and we were happy!
