Champagne Louis Roederer Cristal 2014
Availability: In stock
A legendary Champagne, Louis Roederer Cristal is made from a blend of Grand Cru grapes grown in the Reims Mountain, the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs.
After a meticulous harvest, one-fifth of the wine was vinified in wooden vats, and the rest was vinified in stainless steel tanks.
Secondary fermentation took place in the bottle, after which Louis Roederer Cristal 2014 was aged for 5 years. Then the wine was disgorged and aged for a further 8 months in the cellar.
Only made in exceptional vintages, Cristal of Louis Roederer was first produced in 1876 for Alexander II, tsar of Russia.
History has it that, by request of the autocratic monarch, the Maison Roederer provided a transparent, flat-bottomed bottle to ensure that neither poison nor an explosive artifact could be hidden either inside or outside it.
The Champagne Louis Roederer Cristal is medium straw-yellow with some amber tinges.
This blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay suggests exquisite aromas of citrus rind, candied fruit, white flowers, pastry, butter and dry fruit, along with notes of ripe white fruit, peaches, passion fruit and watermelon.
Marvelously round, dreamy and elegant, this Champagne of Maison Louis Roederer has some scintillating, perfectly integrated bubbles, a caressing, silky body and a perfect acidity. Medium-long finish with remembrances of flowers, fruit and toast.
