Louis Roederer Cristal 2012

CHA061/12

£190.00

Quick Overview

2012 was one of the most challenging and complicated years ever experienced in Champagne. However, difficult conditions often lead to great things… The low yields, due to the unpredictable weather, combined with continental conditions towards the end of the season, gave us unusual levels of maturity, resulting in rich, full-bodied and structured wines worthy of the greatest vintages in Champagne.

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!

TASTING NOTES Golden yellow in colour with glistening gold tints. Incredibly dynamic effervescence, so lively you can almost hear it! Rich and complex aromas with notes of zesty and candied fruit (lemon) mingled with pollen (white flowers), roasted hazelnut and Madagascar vanilla. After aeration, the bouquet develops rich notes of fresh pastries and smoky notes from bottle ageing. A delicious, concentrated and chalky palate. It shows incredible tension and perfectly honed aromatic precision. The attack is powerful, distinctive and concentrated and reveals a silky, mouth-coating texture, characteristic of the ripe Pinot noirs from the 2012 vintage.
