Tasting note of Louis Roederer Cristal cartoning
Louis Roederer Cristal cartoning is of iridescent color with slightly amber reflections. Attenuated effervescence, almost shy, but thin, slow and regular.
Bouquet rich in candied fruits (lemon, orange), white flowers (lily) and lightly toasted nuts (hazelnut, almond).
Round and fruity in the mouth, wide and complex at the same time.
The texture, incredibly concentrated, gives the impression of biting a ripe and fleshy fruit. This density of juicy, creamy and silky fruits invades the palate that quickly gives rise to a pure, chiseled and slender freshness.
Cristal is a Crianza wine, which can be preserved for more than twenty years without losing its freshness or character.
