1978 Louis Roederer Champagne Cristal Brut - France, Champagne (1/17/2018)
From magnum this was in sparkling form. All oyster shell and orchard fruits with some mushroom and toast development. It still boasts a vigorous mousse and pinhead bead. It has good volume and excellent persistence.

enjoyed it very much at ten years old, glad to see it still alive and prickling
Cristal excels in mediocre or even poor vintages.
You know it’s a good wine when Ray shows up.
Nice one mate, champagne from mags always tastes better!
Had generally good luck with older Crystals, the '83 and '85’s were all pretty tasty…
