Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2006

$350

Glistening color with light amber highlights, indicating a year of very fine ripeness. Soft, almost timid bubbles, in a fine, slow and steady flow. There is a rich bouquet with confit fruit (lemon, orange), white flowers (lilies) and lightly roasted nuts (hazelnuts and almonds). On airing, the dominant fruitiness becomes intense, almost explosive: a sabayon of vine peaches,apricots, melon and mango. The mouth features a rounded, complex ballet of fruit. The texture is incredibly concentrated, giving the impression of biting into a ripe, fleshy fruit. The palate is enveloped by this depth of juicy, creamy, silky fruit, which soon makes way for a pure, sharp, graceful freshness. A transition follows from ripe fruit to a clear, light, delicate environment. Ripeness, softness and concentration arise from freshness and mineral quality, transforming the ripe fruit into a slightly sharp citrus flavor; the warmer notes make way for flowers, citrus zests and nuts. After this rapid succession of flavors, there is a lasting impression of harmony: the aromas, flavors, slight bitterness and freshness come in just the right proportions, intermingling to form a perfectly integrated yet complex whole. A few hints of tatin tart and Danish pastries add a final touch to the already complex range of aromas. Blend: 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay *this item will only be shipped to the billing address of the credit card used to order

Celebrating with my boys in Pittsburgh. Great moments... Nose displays yeast, slightly musty and soft oak. Palate shows lemon citrus, pears with hints of honey. This is awkward as the wine is declining. Finishes bone-dry. Get after these now.

Honestly, if I had this blind I probably wouldn't pick this as clearly superior to other good champagnes. Is it good? Sure. Is it miles above its peers as indicated by its price? Probably not. I enjoyed it anyway, though.
