2012 LOUIS ROEDERER, CRISTAL / 路易王妃-水晶香槟

Something about Louis Roederer

Since its creation in 1776, the historic house of Louis Roederer has approached the creation of its champagnes as an art. Composed of Chardonnay, Pinot Noit and Pinot Meunier from the vintage plus 10% aged reserve wines; Louis Roeder Brut Premier is the classic cuvee of the house and expresses its timeless style. Cristal de Roederer, the prestige cuvée of the Louis Reoderer, is synonymous with extravagance and pleasure and until the 1920’s was reserved only for a very particular client: the Tsar of Russia.

FROM THE
EXPERTS

Such attractive, fresh, floral aromas here with fine bread, hints of white almonds and a lemon edge. White cherries and strong, chalky minerals, too. The palate has a very composed feel. Seamless and quite silky texture with effortless length and flow. Very fluid and composed. Very late, warming almond flavors. This is very long and smooth with a velvety finish. Super long pinot weight. Resolved and drinkable, but will age so well.

The 2012 Cristal is another absolutely stellar wine this flight of recent releases. Rich, vinous and beautifully textured, the 2012 has been nothing short of magnificent on the three occasions I have tasted it so far. In the glass, the 2012 is radiant and luscious, yet it possesses remarkable transparency and striking aromatic depth. Light tropical notes develop in the glass, giving the 2012 a real feeling of exotic beauty. The 2012 is the first vintage of Cristal done with 100% organically-farmed fruit, an approach introduced gradually starting with the 2007 that has profoundly changes Cristal, especially in its aromatic breadth. Two thousand twelve is the vintage where endless trials and experiments in farming and winemaking are fully realized. The 2012 is just stunning. It’s as simple as that. Dosage is just over 7 grams per liter, the lowest it has even been for Cristal. Drink 2022-2052.
