– Candy Champagne
In my profile (“Champagne Candy”), I listed one of my top champagne experiences to include the Roederer Cristal tasting at the New York Wine Experience in October 2013.
We tried four exceptional champagnes:
– Louis Roederer Brut Champagne Cristal 2002
– Louis Roederer Brut Champagne Cristal 1996
– Louis Roederer Brut Champagne Cristal 1990
– Louis Roederer Brut Rose Champagne Cristal 2002
CAN YOU IMAGINE TRYING ALL FOUR OF THESE CHAMPAGNES?
Yes, that was 2002, 1996, 1990 and a 2002 Rose. I had to pinch myself!
We were challenged to describe and pick our favourite. What a good problem to have!
How does one choose when they are all so special and unique? I simply cannot rate them, but will describe them as:
– Outstanding (2002)
– Exceptional (1996)
– WOW (1990)
– OMG (2002)
And to top it off, it was moderated by Alison Napjus – just saying!
