Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2005

$350

Lively, uninterrupted bubbles, with a steady creamy flow. An intensely elegant, rich, ripe bouquet. A succession of white fruits (apple), ripe and juicier yellow fruits (peaches) and slightly sour citrus fruits (mandarin oranges). The quite typical Chardonnay notes appear after a few minutes: white flowers (acacia), dried fruit, buttery caramel hints, suggestive of almost vanilla-like pastries. The bouquet is striking: its has great aromatic freshness but is already very open and mature. The bite is full-bodied, soft and winey. It gives a well-rounded, almost smooth impression with ripe sun-drenched white and yellow fruits. The flavors are typical of Chardonnay: accessible, rich, fleshy fruit combined with warm, almost buttery hints. The measured bubbles and fresh limestone quality 'stretch' in the mouth, giving a pure, graceful impression. The finish is slightly tighter with a delicious, lingering, sensuous and almost sweet taste. This Cristal 2005 stands out from all other Cristal vintages due to its aromatic openness and typical Chardonnay character. The ripe 2005 grapes produced wines of a unique nature, combining wininess with long-lasting quality, elegance and consistency. It is even reminiscent of a few Burgundy-like delights. *this item will only be shipped to the billing address of the credit card used to order

More restrained than I remember it. Lemon, limestone, salinity. Fresh and delicious and getting better in the glass

Sweet and floral. Lovely delicate lemon curd with a hint of sandalwood and minerality. Delicious- open and fun.

A very expansive nose. Succulent bright fruit with lemon, yeast, limestone. Really light and powerful with good length. Refreshing, zesty and delicious.

05 vintage at In Situ (yes I brought in the wine for early Cecilia Chiang dinner) and it was full mousse at first pouring. Just gushed and relaxed into precise focused wine with intensity and subtleness. All the peaches and zest but drank mostly just like Cristal should always. It's why they get away with that packaging!
