Louis Roederer Cristal 1982

1 in stock

Disgorged in 1987. A dream vintage, after 1980 and 1981 – catastrophic because of very low quantity. High quantity and high quality (like Bordeaux). Med pH 65% PN, 35% Chardonnay. 23% oak fermentation.

Lovely truffley fully developed nose. Tightly wound and very intriguing. Rich underneath. Very flattering and gorgeous. Finishes a little skinnier. Lots of mushrooms on the palate. Long. Quite rich really Very much a wine rather than a champagne, with some real weight. Very fine and neat and dense. Perhaps slightly less concentrated than the 1990 and 1996. 19/20
