Lot #72. Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé Brut 1988

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Champagne.
Score: 98 RJ.
"There is a finesse and crystal-clear elegance that makes me happy. This rosé reminds me very much of the white '89, with its perfect balance, crackling acidity, and irresistible aromatic purity. A wonderful gift from the Royal Ballet's premier dancer, Brendan Collins. Best “Party Champagne” ever produced, according to the Millennium Tasting. Slightly less fascinating in a perhaps not perfectly stored case lately. The development is slightly too rapid in comparison with what I was expecting, and while the wine has indeed gained in strength and depth, it has lost too much in elegance." Richard Juhlin, ChampagneClub.com, Jan 2012
Provenance: The Araratian Cellar
Notes: OC.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $750
