Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Champagne

Quantity:

Cristal is a remarkably balanced and refined champagne whose length is inimitable. It has a silky texture and fruity aromas, complemented by a powerful mineral quality with white fruit and citrus notes. Cristal is a wine that keeps well: it can be conserved for over twenty years without losing its freshness and character.

This iconic Champagne is famously ageable. In its youth offers tremendous richness and depth, and is a striking, finely-balance wine. As it matures, it will taken on an even more intense character. Sip it with caviar or roasted lobster.

Please note that the vintage may be different and is in accordance to the availability of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario.

« A wine of pure pleasure and a sophisticated gastronomic wine, Cristal
is both powerful and delicate, combining subtlety and precision. »

— Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Cellar Master

Tasting Notes A golden hue with soft, glowing highlights. Fine, steady, gentle bubbles. Powerful and complex on the palate, revealing a mixture of yellow fruit (mirabelle plum), juicy, ripe fruits (nectarine), citrus peel (candied orange) and finely-roasted nuts (hazelnut). The nose is simultaneously powdery and sweet, with elegant, chalky notes. Gentle, tactile and full-bodied on the palate. The bubbles create a gentle, vibrating sensation, then the wine becomes soft, dense and juicy. But it is the chalky freshness that quickly sets the tone: the sweetness becomes energetic and intense, giving the wine an elegant yet powerful texture. Fine, textured tannins reveal a poised and vinous dimension to the wine. The finish is savoury and saline.
