Champagne Louis Roederer - Cristal Rosé Brut Vintage 1995
The domainAlways family, the house Louis Roederer leans on a vineyard rare, admirably situated with a high proportion of vines classified as Grand cru (70%). Despite the global success of Cristal, its cuvée of prestige, the House Roederer has always refused to embark on a race for the quantities produced, preferring to remain in control of a supply that relies almost exclusively on an owned vineyard (an exception at this level!). The result is champagnes very focused on purity and uprightness, with wines which gain enormously in complexity with aging: do not hesitate to put each of the cuvées in the cellar, because the breed of the terroirs and the finesse of the vinifications are revealed in a way spectacular with time !
Format: Single box
Culture : Conventional farming
Pinot noir, Chardonnay
Tasting: Light pink color with copper reflections. Fine and elegant effervescence. Nose both delicate and intense: a sort of kaleidoscope of fresh fruit (strawberry, vine peach, morello cherry) and dried fruit with in particular hints of lightly toasted chestnuts. After a few minutes, it is still the fruit that dominates (blackcurrant, raspberry) this time associated with slight resinous and iodized notes typical of Champagne autolysis.
