Louis Roederer Cristal Brut 2013 Unboxed 12% 750ml

Cristal is the pinnacle of the Roederer family and a world leader in Champagne excellence. This glistening drop has the most refined, soft bubbles that carry the heavenly lemon, orange, lily and hazelnut aromas to an explosive intensity, opening up to peaches, apricots, melon and mango. The mouth-feel is rounded, complex and full of concentrated fruit. This is the ultimate Champagne for life’s most special moments.

Taste Notes: This is quite chalky with firm phenolics that frame the wine beautifully. It’s medium-to full-bodied with strawberries and earth. Dense, linear and intense. Hints of brioche and pie crust at the end. Very structured and gorgeous. Salty and lightly chewy. One third of the base wines fermented and aged in oak. Connoisseur Champagne. From organic vineyards of the Roederer domains. Smaller production than normal. Seven years on the lees. Give it two or three years to open. 

Louis Roederer today remains one of the very few remaining family owned Houses in Champagne with 7th generation Frederic Rouzaud at the helm. From the 100 hectares acquired in 1850 by Louis Roederer, the Domaine today extends over 240 hectares averaging 98% on the official Echelle classification. All vineyard acquisitions follow Louis Roederer’s strict 70% policy – that is ownership of at least 70% of the total production. All Louis Roederer Cuvees are Estate grown with the exception of Brut Premier which is 60% estate fruit and 40% fruit sourced from long-term contracted growers.

Louis Roederer farm 65 Ha of their Domaine vineyards under a biodynamic and organic regime as part of what Chef de Cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon says is a work in progress. In 2012 Louis Roederer became the largest biodynamic producer in Champagne.
