Roederer's 2002 Cristal is still in its infant, fresh stage. Subtle notes of pears, flowers, spices, mint, minerals and oak are woven into a cashmere-like frame of extraordinary grace and elegance. This beautifully-sculpted Champagne possesses notable clarity but with the additional depth of fruit that is characteristic of this vintage. It is a gorgeous, seductive Cristal of the highest level. In 2002, Cristal is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay with 10 grams of dosage. 20% of the wine was fermented in oak. This is Lot : L030351A107809. This bottle was disgorged in June 28th, 2007.

My expectations were not entirely fulfilled since this wine plays in exactly the same league as the ordinary vintage wine and the Blanc de Blancs this time. Sublime and aristocratic of course, but not as full-bodied as the vintage wine. Wonderfully feminine elegance just a month later.

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson Issue: Web

A suave customer, with hints of citrus, berry and coffee. Harmonious and refined, with freshness and a bright structure. The finish shows a lot of potential, with a mouthwatering aftertaste. Better than previously reviewed.

Silky smooth Champagne. In all honesty, this was our first venture into sparkling wine, but I was blow away. So much to the extent that I had to try other sparklings later on that week and nothing came close... still can't decide if an extra $400 is worth the Rose, but this was great!

Had for new years. Very young still but the aromas were great with perfumed flowers and sweet apples. On the palate it was not your typical yeasty champagne, it was all so focused and integrated. Smooth with slight acidity. Not worth the price though!! Still a good champagne but I can find better for 40 bucks
