Roederer Cristal 2009 Brut
75 cl Bottle
Heir to the Champagne House in 1833, Louis Roederer took the visionary step of enriching his vineyard to control all the stages of wine making. He thus forged a unique style, spirit and taste. In the middle of the 19th century, by acquiring vines chosen with instinct and eclecticism from the lands of the great growths of Champagne, Louis Roederer acted against the current of the customs and habits of his time. In 1870, Champagne Roederer travelled to the United States and invited himself to the table of Tsar Alexander III. The first prestigious cuvée was born in 1876 under the name Cristal. Still independent, the house is today managed by Frédéric Rouzaud, who represents the 7th generation. This cuvée was created in 1974 and brings together Grands Crus from the Montagende Reims, the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs. Dosage 7,5g/l

Beautiful golden yellow color. Rich and complex bouquet revealing aromas of tart and candied fruits (lemon), zesty notes, where pollen (white flower), roasted hazelnut and Madagascar vanilla mingle. When aired, the bouquet is enriched with sweet notes of pastries and smoke from the maturation in the bottle. Tasty mouth, both concentrated and chalky. The incredible tension and aromatic precision is perfectly chiselled. The attack is powerful, racy and concentrated.
