Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne 2014 has an intense, bright and luminous golden hue. It has a dynamic effervescence with a continuous stream of fine bubbles. The fragrance is intense and with great purity. There are concentrated and candied citrus fruit that mingle delicately with notes of grain and lightly toasted almonds. The sensation of big ripe fruits is balanced and lifted by the energetic and tangy fresh overtones.
The fruity palate has a silky texture, complemented by soft bubbles that are perfectly integrated and deliciously elegant. The purity and perfection of the ripe yellow fruit melts into intense chalky freshness, so typical of Cristal, that's both powdery and saline.
Dense, juicy, concentrated and long on the mid-palate, that stems from the spicy and sappy structure resulting from partial ageing in large oak vats (foudres).
The finish builds to a crescendo, revealing a rich grainy and velvety texture that is wrapped in a long, saline and superbly elegant finish.
Produced by the Louis Roederer Champagne House with utmost care and attention. In order to preserve the quality of this wine it is recommended that the bottle is stored horizontally and in a cool, dry place. The coloured cellophane should always be removed at the very last minute in order to protect the wine from the adverse effect of artificial light.
