Description · Louis Roederer

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

WINERY: 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...

Louis Roederer Cristal 2006

An extraordinary balance, Cristal is a refined champagne, whose persistence on the palate remains unparalleled. Its silky texture reveals aromas of fruit, enhanced by a power which emanate mineral notes of white fruit and citrus. Crystal is a wine aging, which can be stored for more than twenty years without losing its freshness and character.

Louis Roederer Cristal Brut 2006

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.

Louis Roederer Champagne Cristal Brut Millésimé Confezione 2006

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.

Details

POWERFUL discreet
Attack juicy fruits and walls (Williams pear), slightly tangy red fruit (currant) with notes of warm pastries and freshly baked Tatin
The wine begs to speak and after a few minutes in the glass, revealing white chocolate and hazelnuts from fermentations undergrowth of some of the wines of the vintage 2007

This juxtaposition of flavors of ripe fruit, tart and sweet with more grilled breeding notes strengthens over time and gives a real sense of depth.
The notes of smoke coming extend the wine, still giving it once an impression of natural depth
The textures are silky, velvety, almost melting; they come perfectly encapsulate the freshness of the wine in a melted and sensual set
Powdery shades and saline are expressed on the edge of the tongue bringing a dimension that is precise and energetic
And it is an impression of delicacy and lightness that totally dominates the end of the tasting.
Potential:
Temperature:
Glassware: Flute curved
Pairing: Aperitif, shellfish

4/5

- Cristal is a blend of Grand Crus from the Montagne de Reims, the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs. The wine is aged for six years in the cellars and left for a minimum of eight months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity.
- Yellow gold in colour with amber tints and persistent, fine and lively bubbles. Subtle on the nose with notes of citrus compote, candied apricots and honeysuckle. When aerated, notes of vanilla and cocoa bean emerge, with toasted hazelnut, hints of liquorice and even a touch of cinnamon.
- The palate is structured and energetic with chalky, cherry freshness and an almost mentholated brightness. The Cristal 2009 is delicate and etherial, exceptionally focussed and full of energy.
- Perfect with white fish such as monk fish, and white meats.
- A continental, sunny year with a real winter that was very cold and dry followed by a glorious sun-filled summer and almost no rain in August and September. All this meant traditional vine growth, excellent health and remarkable grape ripeness for the production of dense, fruity and delicious wines. 2009 is an obvious addition to the select group of brilliant and accomplished Champagne vintages with a light, sunny character.
- 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay.

3/5

Taste: High acid, much lemon flavor with a taste of pineapple on the final notes. Extremely good mousse.

Comment: Compared with 06 wins 06 large. 07 is a real lemon bomb. Too much citric acid and removes the complexity of the wine. However, still a very good champagne.

4/5

This fantastic jewel is remained still today faithful to the value that l' it has inspired in far away 1876, when Luis Roederer purposely created it like gift for the Zar Alexander II of Russia. All' visual examination cannot that crystalline being! The spuma it is rich with the most fine and interminable bollicine. The olfattive feelings are wide, intense that remember the warm bread crust, the fruit sand bank, the honey, the chocolate and delicate speziate feelings. Al palate is rich, satisfactory with a entusiasmanti concentration and length.
