  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Certainly not the most refined Cristal, this is still a very good wine. Nose of lemon peel, apple, light hay smoke, and wet rocks. Relatively smooth in the mouth despite youthful acid and citrus.
