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".

Nose: Faint scent of white bread and orange fruit.

Taste: Steeped flavor of mandarin, orange, lemon and peach. Weak tons of bread in the background.

Comment: A taste explosion of yellow-orange fruits and a very small hint of bread. Just a bit more mature than Cristal 2004. But even this champagne will be a great vintage for the may be stored a few more years.

4 /5

- View: Louis Roederer Cristal Brut 2005 has a bright golden yellow with uninterrupted animated bubbles, creamy with a constant flow
- Nose: An elegant intensely rich, ripe bouquet. A succession of white fruit (apple), ripe and juicy (peaches) yellow fruits and slightly acidic citrus (mandarin oranges). Pretty typical Chardonnay notes appear after a few minutes: white flowers (acacia), dried fruits, hints of butterscotch, suggestive vanilla cakes almost similar. The bouquet is striking: its has great aromatic freshness, but is already very open and mature.
- Mouth: The bite is full bodied, soft and vinous. It gives an almost smooth with ripe white fruits and yellow sun-drenched well rounded impression. The flavors are typical of Chardonnay: rich fruit available, combined with warm fleshy almost buttery touch.
