Details

Louis Roederer Cristal is a legendary Champagne made from a blend of Grand Cru grapes grown in the Reims Mountain, the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs.

The 2006 vintage is composed of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay coming from the best plots in the whole of the Champagne region.

20% of the wine was vinified in wooden vats, and the rest in stainless steel tanks.

Secondary fermentation took place in the bottle, as well as the 5-year ageing period. After that, the wine was disgorged and aged for a further 8 months in the cellar.

Luis Roederer Cristal, by Louis Roederer, is only made in exceptional vintages and 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.

Additional Information

Appearance

Clean, translucent, bright straw-yellow colour with some amber tinges.

Nose

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.

Palate

Marvelously round, dreamy and elegant. Scintillating, perfectly-integrated bubbles, a caressing, silky body and a perfect acidity. Medium-long finish with remembrances of flowers, fruit and toast.

Louis Roederer Cristal 2006 is the perfect wine for those special occasions in life.
