Description of Louis Roederer Cristal 2006

Louis Roederer Cristal 2006 (Chardonnay, Pinot Nero, Pinot Noir and Pinot)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Louis Roederer Cristal 2006 has a light amber color with shimmering reflections, almost timid with soft bubbles in a thin, slow and steady stream.
  • Nose: A rich bouquet with candied fruit (lemon, orange), white flowers (lilies) and lightly toasted nuts (hazelnuts and almonds). In issuing the ruling becomes intense fruitiness, almost explosive: A sabayon vine peaches, apricots, melon and mango.
  • Mouth: The palate is rounded complex ballet of fruit. The texture is very concentrated, giving the impression of biting a ripe fleshy fruit. The palate is enveloped by this depth of juicy, creamy, silky fruit, which soon gives way to an acute, elegant pure freshness. A transition is clear from the ripe fruit to clear ambient light, and delicate. Maturity, smoothness and concentration arising from the freshness and quality of mineral processing of ripe fruit flavor in a slightly citric acid; warmer notes give way to flowers, citrus peel and nuts.

Grapes: 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay

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".

5/5

Bouquet: Deep and complex aromas of apple, plum, lemon, caramel and a bit of bread.

Taste: apple, plum, lemon, caramel, tons of bread and even a hint of chocolate in the background.


My personal favorite of all champagnes. Louis Roederer surpasses once again themselves. Will be interesting to see if 07 can reach the same quality.

4 /5

I was impressed by its colour. A wine with clearly projected aromas and flavours, such as yeast. Black plum compote flavours.
It would have been better with fish.
A good wine to enjoy with good friends.
