Description of Louis Roederer Cristal 1996

Louis Roederer Cristal 1996 (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir)

Has a yellow color with golden reflections. The bubbles are fine and regular, very persistent. Intense, fresh and very precise. Your bouquet gamma integrally passes by more complex aromas, starting with aromas of fruit (pears), crystallized citrus peel and lightly toasted nuts, which after a few minutes of oxygenation in cup pass aging flavors, such as almond and honey. Broad and fleshy, with deep, pear-flavored gum, fruit pits and buttered toast flavors. A serious style with a velvety texture and excellent finish. This champagne has the concentration to keep in storage, but can also be enjoyed in his young side.

Pairing: There is no perfect marriage, and anyone can begin to imagine that dishes could be served with champagne this stretch of the imagination, but it can be perfect served with seafood, foie, and even sushi.

The Winery

Louis Roederer

Louis Roederer

A passion for great wines and a desire to compensate for the limits that the "château policy" naturally imposes on the development of Louis Roederer Champagne have, over the years, driven Jean Claude and then Frédéric Rouzaud to acquire an exclusive group of properties around the Champagne House in Reims which, although managed truly independently, share the same philosophy of excellence, and today make up the "Louis Roederer Group".

Your rating for Louis Roederer Cristal 1996:Rate Louis Roederer Cristal 1996:


Aroma: Light sötsockrig fragrance with a tone of light oak and bread. Even light buttery scent.

Taste: Very lemon flavor with slight hints of oak.

Comment: Cristal 1996 was a bit of a disappointment. A very thin and watery scent. One senses potential but the champagne has to mature despite its 19 years. Taste register is weak and permeated all of the high acidity of the lemon.
