Champagne Louis Roederer Cristal 2013
Golden color, intense, luminous and brilliant. Dynamic effervescence, an incessant succession of clouds of fine bubbles. Intense bouquet, fragrant and of great purity. Concentrated and candied citrus fruits blend delicately with notes of harvest and lightly toasted almonds. Sensation of a beautiful and generous ripeness of fruit, tempered by fresh and tangy rebounds, delicate and energetic. Fruity palate and silky texture, amplified by a perfectly integrated and deliciously elegant soft effervescence. The purity and perfection of the yellow, ripe fruit melts into the intense chalky freshness typical of Cristal, both powdery and saline. Dense, juicy, concentrated, elongated mid-palate, thanks to the sappy and spicy structure of partial aging in oak casks. The finish goes crescendo, revealing a full texture made of grain and velvet coated in a long, saline finish of sublime elegance.
