TN: 1990 Louis Roederer Champagne Cristal Brut (France, Champagne)

1990 Louis Roederer Champagne Cristal Brut - France, Champagne (8/12/2014)
Served with steamed lobsters for our 25th anniversary dinner, this was a breathtaking bottle of Champagne that demonstrated the class and refinement of Cristal. From the pinpoint mousse to the elegant, mature flavors, this bottle showed as well as could ever be expected. Nuts, warm bread, apple and toasty elements dominated at first, but freshened with time and with the partnership of lobster and lemon. The brightness on tbe palate was a little bit unexpected from a ripe vintage wine, but very welcome, as it balanced the depth and richness of the flavors. Overall a truly outstanding bottle, worthy of the occasion.

happy anniversary. The missus deserves a magnum of that wine.

We agree, just not on a school night.

Congratulations and happy anniversary David!
