Louis Roederer Cristal 2012

  • $450.00*

Cristal is the pinnacle of the Roederer family and a world leader in Champagne excellence. This glistening drop has the most refined, soft bubbles that carry the heavenly lemon, orange, lily and hazelnut aromas to an explosive intensity, opening up to peaches, apricots, melon and mango. The mouth-feel is rounded, complex and full of concentrated fruit. This is the ultimate Champagne for life’s most special moments.

APPEARANCE

A golden hue with soft, glowing highlights. Fine, steady, gentle bubbles.

AROMA

Powerful and complex on the palate, revealing a mixture of yellow fruit (mirabelle plum), juicy, ripe fruits (nectarine), citrus peel (candied orange) and finely-roasted nuts (hazelnut). The nose is simultaneously powdery and sweet, with elegant, chalky notes.

PALATE

Gentle, tactile and full-bodied on the palate. The bubbles create a gentle, vibrating sensation, then the wine becomes soft, dense and juicy. But it is the chalky freshness that quickly sets the tone: the sweetness becomes energetic and intense, giving the wine an elegant yet powerful texture. Fine, textured tannins reveal a poised and vinous dimension to the wine. The finish is savoury and saline.
