    (Roederer Cristal) I have found most bottles of Cristal post-1996 a bit tight and lacking the complexity I desire.  I hope the formula hasn’t changed since then.

    (Roederer Cristal) This is generally a blend of about 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay, the exact numbers varying with the vintage but Pinot always has the upper hand. A very finely defined nose with ethereal white fruit and floral elements. The palate is very harmonious, broadening out beautifully from a crisp, floral beginning. Very nicely composed, expressive yet firm and upright. I've heard criticism of this vintage but this is showing very well here - but it warrants some cellar time. Really a superb effort which will drink beautifully for years.
