The Cristal Rosé 2000 has fine, consistent bubbles, with very persistent beading. On the nose, it is intense, fresh and very precise. The bouquet ranges across the entire spectrum of complex flavors, opening with scents of red berries (cherry), crystallized citrus peel and lightly roasted nuts, which after a few minutes airing in the glass are followed by aromas of ageing, such as almond and honey. An admirably rounded attack brings further proof of the intensity of aroma that is typical of the 2000 vintage. Scents of white flowers mingle with flavors of red berries, caramel and upside-down apple tart. The texture on the front palate has all the roundness, generosity and refinement that is expected of Louis Roederer. The supporting structure is vinous but not overly robust, with a delightful freshness that underscores the wine's precision while creating an impression of lasting finesse. Overall assessment: A lush, refined and precise wine - powerful, exceptionally seductive and entirely characteristic of this classically ripe vintage.

Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Cristal Rose emerges from the glass in a stunning display of well-articulated aromas and flavors. Everything in is perfect balance as this perfumed wine opens up in the glass in a style that recalls the weightless transparency of a great Burgundy. The finish is long, sweet and incredibly refined. I came back to the bottle several hours after opening, and the wine had blossomed into an extraordinary Champagne. In 2000 the Brut Cristal Rose is 70% Pinot Noir from Ay and 30% Chardonnay from Mesnil, Avize and Oger. Roughly 15% of the wine was aged in oak. This is Lot: L029898D100064, disgorged February 1st, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020.

Wine EnthusiastOrange-pink in color, this a super-rich rosé. The flavors are of orange zest, citrus and red currants, with a beautiful contrast of hazelnuts. The texture, round and succulent, is still able to offer minerality and a crisp aftertaste.

Wine SpectatorA lean, angular Champagne, showing light fruit preserve, citrus and toast notes. Turns even more austere on the finish, with moderate length. Best from 2010 through 2025.
