Description · Louis Roederer

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.
