Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé 1981
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Champagne
Grape Variety: Chardonnay - Pinot Noir
The 1981 Cristal is one of the biggest surprises of the night. Although it is fully mature, the 1981 is fabulous tonight. Hints of roasted almond, orange peel, caramel and spices suggest a fully mature wine, yet the 1981 has a sense of energy and overall symmetry that is impossible to miss. The 1981 won’t last forever, but it is without question one of the most rewarding vintages to drink today. Tasted October 2014, Vinous 92 Points Antonio Galloni.
