Louis Roederer Cristal 2013 Champagne (France, Gift Boxed)

Tasting Notes

Louis Roederer Cristal 2013 has a soft golden hue with 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.

Cristal is Louis Roederer Champagne House' most famous wine, first created in 1876 to satisfy the demanding tastes of Tsar Alexander II. The emperor asked Louis Roederer to reserve the House’s best cuvée for him every year. He was particularly fond of the House’s wine. To distinguish this cuvée, this exceptional champagne came in a flat-bottomed, transparent lead-crystal bottle. The new brand was named after this precious material, which is particularly transparent and luminous.

The last vintage harvested in October, the only one in two decades, Cristal 2013 continues the great tradition of balance and purity that has made it legendary. The mineral concentration is at its peak and achieves tremendous depth in this late year.

The longer vegetative cycle, the dry, bright summer and the slow ripening of the grapes up until the start of the autumn have given rise to two remarkably well-balanced and fresh champagnes that are the quintessence of chalky purity and the unique elegance typical of Louis Roederer Cristal.

Continuing down the path of a renaissance viticulture in which eco-friendly practices, biodynamic composts and respect for living organisms are the only rules, Cristal 2013 fully embraces its terroir and offers us its purest distillate.

For 2013, the Chardonnay shone with a new light, deeper, more complex and more saline. Blended with the Pinot Noir, it brings it out and takes it to a higher dimension, providing a structure and texture that portend a remarkable potential.

The perfect embodiment of chalky purity, Cristal 2013 is a little restrained in its youth. Its perfumed finesse and great elegance draw their energy this year from the slow ripening of the grapes. This is a masterfully crafted wine, glowing and concentrated, which leans towards the soil, reflecting the salinity of its terroir as never before. Winery Notes
