Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé Magnum 2012

1,190.00

Salmon pink hue with golden tints.
Consistent and incredibly delicate effervescence.
The bouquet is poised and remarkably elegant. Its subtle, fleeting aromas are so delicately scented, intertwined and complex that they are difficult to
describe. They invite you to take your time and lose yourself in this wine, which reveals itself at its own pace, like the master of time it is! The nose exudes delicate, zesty, fresh and precise notes of citrus peel, yuzu, forest fruit, mandarin, raspberry and wild strawberry which evolve towards roasted notes and almonds before giving way to fresh, herbal aromas of verbena and bergamot.
It reveals a lively palate invigorated by an incredibly elegant effervescence and beautifully light bubbles that soften the fruity structure and texture. The overwhelming sensation is one of serenity, the elegance of fresh fruit and the power of the zesty, chalky freshness. The finish is wonderfully long and enticing.

A blend of around 56% Pinot Noir and 44% Chardonnay, comprising 20% of wine matured in oak tuns, Cristal Rosé is produced using the saignée (bleeding) process after cold maceration. The Cristal Rosé cuvée is aged, on average, for 6 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars.

A complex year, as delicate as it is unprecedented, 2012 gave birth to one of the greatest vintages of Champagne. If the yields were low, the quality was there. The continental climatic conditions at the end of the season announced ideal harvests, with grapes having reached a rare level of maturity. Cristal Rosé 2012 from Louis Roederer also marks the advent of a new chapter in the history of the house’s viticulture: that of viticulture where Man and Nature are in perfect harmony.
