Roederer's 2002 Cristal is a fabulous wine! Originally released in 2009, it was re-released in March this year—and was sold out in a very short time. The Cristal I tasted at Roederer in May 2018 was disgorged in 2010, after seven years sur lie. Its amazing richness and concentration makes it a forerunner of the 2015 and follows the 1999. Only two times—2002 and 2015—the fruit from all 42 plots reserved for Cristal was used for the Cristal. "I couldn't do any better blend than the one assembling all the 42 plots," says Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, stressing that at that time only two hectares were farmed biodynamically. As a result of the conversion to biodynamic farming, Lécaillon promised himself the production of even more beautiful, vital and balanced wines, and you can feel his satisfaction whenever he speaks of the cuvées that are yet to come such as 2012 and 2015, the latter of which he calls "the new 2002." Back to history: the nose of the 2002 Cristal shows a deep, ripe and elegant fruit with aromas of white chocolate, wet chalk, wild vanilla and pepper (typical for 2002) as well as terroir-driven truffle notes. Intense and very elegant in the mouth, this is a ripe, rich and concentrated yet also pure and vital Cristal with great finesse, elegance and mineral complexity. It's a sublime Champagne right now, although it's more wine than Champagne. Tasted in Reims in May 2018.

Here are the most recent and upcoming cuvées from Louis Roederer and the list of full of highlights. For the Cristal and Cristal Rosé vintages 2009 and the just released 2008, see the Cristal report published in the Interim Mid-June Issue. Here, readers will find tasting notes for the 2002 Cristal and Cristal Rosé, both of which are rich and concentrated legends in top form, especially the Rosé, which received the highest rating of all Champagnes being tasted in 40 years of The Wine Advocate. This isn't spectacular enough? Well, then let me draw your attention to "the other" Cristal—Cristal Vinothèque. The Vinothèque collection is more than just a late-release edition of Cristal. The recently released 1995 as well as the upcoming 1996 vintages spent 14 years before disgorgement and another seven years after. Due to the fact that acidity rounds out with age, the dosage of the Cristal Vinothèque is significantly lower than the original disgorgement. The 1995 Cristal Vinothèque was the inaugural vintage for both the white and the rosé, and it will be followed by the 1996 in September 2018. The 1997 and 1999 will follow in the coming years. If you prefer Cristal in a bigger, richer and more concentrated style, you should go for the caressing 2002 (at least in three-star Michelin restaurants, readers might still have a chance to find one), whereas freshness and elegance is perfectly represented in the 2008 and 1996 vintages.
