Tasting Notes and Scores

Richard Juhlin
96

Roeder's Cristal belongs to the elite of prestige Champagnes. It combines Bollinger's and Krug's heavy, nutty, Pinot-inspired style, with Taittinger Comtes de Champagne's enjoyably exotic fruitiness and butter-caramel taste. The only comment I have is that the vintages can be rather uneven and that the dosage tends to be a little too high for my taste. The '88 is young and classic with a rich fruit, nascent nuttiness, and great depth. Even this wine has developed in an amazing way and is now a world-class experience
