Louis Roederer Cristal Brut 2014
WA 96: The 2014 Cristal is a terrific effort that transcends then vintage. Bursting from the glass with expressive aromas of ripe citrus fruit, nectarine, white flowers, freshly baked bread and subtle hints of honeycomb, it's medium to full bodied, vinous and fleshy with an exuberant core of fruit that's girdled by racy acid, resulting in a wine that's simultaneously chiseled and demonstrative meaning that early appeal doesn't come at the expense of the requisite tension for long term cellaring. concluding with a long aromatic and intensely chalky finish, it is a brilliant Champagne that will offer a broad drinking window.
