Louis Roederer Cristal
Brilliant yellow colour displaying light amber nuances, combined with an ultra-fine, persistent, soft effervescence. There’s an intense, highly expressive bouquet on the nose. The aromatic elegance and precision of Chardonnay is apparent: white fruit, sweet pollen, fine citrus fruit and very pure minerality. After a few minutes, the aromas move on to more confit, lightly grilled hints. The bouquet is rich and sweet, almost generous, remaining precise and impeccably refined.
The bite in the mouth is full and creamy, revealing an incredible concentration of juicy fruits: yellow peach, apricot, mango and others. This silky, meaty concentration, which is both dense and soft and typical of great Pinot Noir, is immediately combined with a sophisticated touch of acidity, bringing the wine alive with minerality. The overriding impression is one of a true harmony of flavours, senses and silky textures.
Alcohol Volume: 12%
Tasting Notes: Cristal is a precise, harmonious wine: rich and powerful with superb aging potential and an infinitely silky texture bursting with scents of red fruit, white chocolate, caramel and sweet pastries. The finish is sustained by a freshness and hint of tartness that adds a whiff of crispness.
