Lot #272. Louis Roederer Cristal Brut 2002

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Champagne.
Score: 100 WSM.
"If a wine could ever make you want to pull the top down on your '68 Ferrari convertible, rip off the rearview mirror and take off, this is it. It has a different kind of energy than the '02 Cristal Rosé, which is more ethereal, like strawberries at the right hand of some ancient Gallic god. This is more insolent, brash, earthbound. All the scents and flavors seem to emanate from limestone, as does the acidity, which hits at the front of the mouth and powers through the wine with the kind of solar energy that lifts mist off the white chalk on a cool morning in Cramant. The wine goes on for miles. It's already irresistable, and will only improve with ten, 20, 30 and 40 years of age." Wine & Spirits Magazine, Dec 2009
Provenance: The Foxy Cellar
Notes: OC.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $250
