    Louis Roederer Vintage Champagne 1996
    Bottle (8)

    "Buy all you can find and leave it forgotten for the time being in some dark corner of the basement… certain bottles are already deliciously honeyed." (94 pts. Richard Juhlin, July 2013)

    "As good as the 1995 Cristal (Late Disgorged) is, the 1996 may be even a touch better, as it has a bit more volume and also more layers of intensity. Taut yet wonderfully explosive, with fabulous energy, the 1996 captures all the best qualities of the vintage. In most 1996 retrospectives, Cristal makes a case for itself as one of the wines of the year, so it is not so surprising to see the Late Disgorged version show so well." (97 pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Jul. 2015)
