Roederer Cristal 2014 750ml
The ultimate luxury Champagne, originally vinted in 1809 for Tsar Alexander II of Russia, 200 years later it is still an icon of luxury, style and taste. Since 2012, Cristal has been made entirely from organically-farmed grapes. This 2014 is the latest release and is receiving rave reviews.
Wine Spectator scored this 98 points saying "This vivid Champagne has upfront and linear definition, thanks to rapierlike acidity, with finely meshed flavors of ripe black cherry and mandarin orange fruit, raw almond, anise and cardamom spice as well as a touch of honeycomb, which all unfurl and expand on the fine, creamy palate. Sleek acidity continues through to the finish, with additional racy character provided by a streak of minerally saline and chalk, which gains momentum through the midpalate and rings out on the well-cut, lasting finish. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2040."
