Louis Roederer Cristal 2009

CHA061/09

£190.00

Quick Overview

Brilliant colour with pale gold highlights, indicating a year of very fine ripeness. A fine, steady flow of bubbles. A rich bouquet with hints of zesty fruit, lilies and light toasty hint of hazelnuts develops in the glass as the fruit aromas become more intense and complex. The palate confirms the delicate fruit with a deep ripe flavour and silky texture, finishing crisply with a pure, minerally balance. 2007 Cristal has an intriguing harmony of aromas, flavours and freshness. As a young wine it is already deliciously balanced and charming, and promises to be a magnificent champagne in full maturity.

Details

I was reading an article the other day about the finer things in life..."There are some occasions in life when nothing else will do..." Cristal can be enjoyed now, but to really get the most out of this glorious Champagne if you can hide it away for a further few years your patience will only be rewarded. Cristal needs time, ideally another 4 to five years if you can bare, and if you can resist the temptation you will enjoy one of the most incredible drinks that you will never forget!

2006 was a very warm year, characterised by contrasting rainfall patterns. June and July were very hot. Following on from an unusually cold and rainy August, a warm, dry September hastened up the ripening process producing distinctive, rich, complex grapes. 55% Pinot Noir / 45% Chardonnay. 20% of the wines are matured in wood (oak vats) with weekly batonnage and no malolactic fermentation to increase the voluptuous character of Cristal. Cristal is matured for 6 years in deep chalk cellars, to ensure the yeasts have time to give the wine as much depth as possible. Finally it sees eight months’ rest after disgorgement.
