Louis Roederer Cristal 1999 Large Format - Magnum 150cl / 12%
A magnum bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal 1999 Vintage Champagne. This is a blend of 57% Pinot Noir and 43% Chardonnay.
'A warm year, the hottest since 1959 at the time, this has high ripeness and plenty of spice, a touch reductive, gentle citrus peel and some candied tropical fruits, clear chalk, dried honey and brioche too. The palate has a compression to it, smooth and finely layered texture here, some flesh and some succulent texture, generous dried red cherry fruit flavours pressed together with layers of more savoury autolysis. Complex and textural Champagne. 97/100' James Suckling, tasted 2014.
