Der Stil: Reich und sahnig, unterstützt mit einer feinen Säure. Die Cuvée „Carte Blanche“ präsentiert Aromen von gezuckerten und reifen Früchten, von Honig und Mandeln. Die reiche, cremige Textur hat eine voluminöse Beschaffenheit, ohne schwer zu wirken. Die Frische und das Volumen des Weines sind ein ausgewogenes Zusammenspiel und enden in einem grossartigen Abgang.

A favourite amongst the rich and famous. Cristal is the jewel of the House of Louis Roederer, first created in 1876 for Tsar Alexander II. This really is champagne at its finest, as inspiring today as it has always been; the embodiment of elegance, beauty and purity. Cristal is made according to the strictest criteria, based on a strict process of selection applying to the vintage, the cru, the village, the grapes and finally the wine. Only Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from the House's 10 most celebrated crus are used in the production of this legendary cuvee from France. Grapes : 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay. Region : France / Champagne AOC Notes : Ripe lush fruits (peaches) and toasty flavours. Dense fleshy structure. Powerful finish. Serve : Aperitif, caviar, fish, lobster ABV : 12%

The 2004 Brut Cristal has put on quite a bit of weight since I first tasted it earlier this year. It is a powerful, structured Cristal layered with considerable fruit. Chardonnay seems to play the leading role in 2004, at least today. Cristal is often accessible young, but that is far from the case here. This is a serious, painfully young Cristal that will require considerable patience. Readers who are willing to spend some time with the wine today will find a super-impressive, complete Cristal. The 2004 Cristal is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay.

Originally vinted in 1809 for Tsar Alexander II of Russia, 200 years later it is still the ultimate Champagne; an icon of luxury, style and taste. Robert Parker raved about this 2004, scoring it 97 points and saying "The 2004 Brut Cristal has put on quite a bit of weight since I first tasted it earlier this year. It is a powerful, structured Cristal layered with considerable fruit. Chardonnay seems to play the leading role in 2004, at least today.

Exceptionally rich and dense, an exceptional wine that reveals itself in layers, from the first fruit attack to the mineral texture and the way it gradually fills the mouth. Selected from old vines, there is a great flavor in this wine, with the promise of many years' aging. Cellar Selection.
