8pts WA 1999 Louis Roederer Cristal from HK$2,950/Bt, "Immensely Concentrated, Pure"

Posted by Veronica Cheung on

Being one of the very top Champagne houses, Louis Roederer's Cristal is highly demanded around the world. The cuvee and its distinctive flat, clear lead crystal glass bottle design was first made in 1876 to satisfy the demanding tastes and safety needs of Tsar Alexander II. Produced only during the best years, when the Chardonnay (around 40%) and Pinot noir (around 60%) grapes have attained perfect maturity, it is aged for 6 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for a further 8 months after dégorgement. Depending on the growing conditions in each year, the cellar master will slightly change his secret recipe as a cooler year may favor Pinot Noir while a warmer year will favor Chardonnay. Every release offers a powerful and multi-dimensional Champagne that amazes every drinker's senses; therefore, we are always keen to stock up on Cristals whenever the price is right.

Today we have an aged Cristal from the 1999 vintage at special prices as low as HK$2,950 per bottle. This was scored a whopping 98 points by Wine Advocate who said this is "immensely concentrated, pure" and "astoundingly long in the finish". Available in individual gift-box packaging or as loose bottles, grab a bottle or two now! -

98pts Wine Advocate
One of the finest Champagnes I have ever brought to my lips, the 1999 Cristal bursts from the glass with fresh hazelnut and apple scents. Elegant, deep, and silky-textured, this medium to full-bodied beauty is immensely concentrated, pure, packed with apple flavors, and astoundingly long in the finish. Louis Roederer does not display a disgorgement date or consumer friendly lot number on its non-vintage Brut. This is regrettable as it has consistently been one of the finer bottlings in this category.

Subject to final confirmation. Special price is valid from now until 28th October 2021 only.
