Louis Roederer Champagne Cristal Brut Premier 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Složení: 55 % Pinot Noir a 45 % Chardonnay. Jedno z nejlepších šampaňských, v dnešní době stále ještě dostupných. Buket Cristalu ze sklenice rozkvétá s vůní čerstvých lískových ořechů a jablek. Je elegantní, hluboký a sametový. Exkluzivní chuť je středně až plně tělnatá, vysoce koncentrovaná, čistá s osvěžující připomínkou jablek a ohromujícím dlouhým závěrem. Hodnocení: 98 b. R.Parker. Alkohol: 12 %

The distinctive qualities of each parcel are the result of great respect for nature. Louis Roederer’s philosophy is shared by Philippe Starck: both are engaged in a quest for authenticity.   The harvest from each parcel is pressed and vinified separately. Over the months, the wine is tasted and analysed by the oenologists; this provides them with an extensive aromatic palette that gives them a rich choice and enables them to develop blends under the watchful eye of the Cellar Master, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. This quest for authenticity matches Philippe Starck’s desire to collaborate on the development of a unique, finely tuned, and authentic cuvée. They decided to draw inspiration from river wines to create a straightforward, medium-dry, terroir-based champagne. Consequently, every measure was taken on the south-facing parcels of Pinot noir to nurture grapes that would attain great maturity, in order to obtain an excellent fruit that would require very minor corrective measures.

Very full and smooth to the point of being almost...silky. It was quite sweet, actually, and not unlike a very light honey. The word bright comes to mind. While certainly a fantastic champagne, I would not be able to tell the difference in quality between this and a bottle of Dom at half this price.

o.k. great as well compared to the 99' however not the same mojo. i would say a gravel taste in the palette hinting at it's dryness but still an outstanding brut

Als Verkörperung des Stils Louis Roederer vereint der Brut Premier die fruchtigen Aromen und die jugendliche Frische mit dem abgerundeten und intensiven Geschmack ausgereifter Weine. Beim Brut Premier handelt es sich um einen äusserst strukturierten Champagner, mit goldgelber Farbe, lebhaftem Auftakt und feiner Perlage. Sein Bukett erinnert an frische Äpfel und der Duft nach Weissdorn verzaubert den Genießer. Die Gaumenaromatik ist komplex; ein Hauch von frischem Obst und roten Früchten wie Brombeeren, Himbeeren und Kirschen verbindet sich mit Aromen von geröstetem Brot und Mandeln. Bei 10 % der Trauben handelt es sich um Reserveweine aus drei vorherigen Weinlesen, die zwischen zwei und sechs Jahren in Eichenfässern gereift sind. Louis Roederer Brut Premier, ein Champagner zum Geniessen!

Intense nose of citrus and red berries. On the palate , ripe lush fruits and toasty flavours. Dense, fleshy structure.

Light gold in color, Brut Premier boasts a smooth, full mouth. This elegant champagne is a delicate balance of fruit and acidity, an outstanding example of the Roederer tradition of producing wines of lean, firm structure with discreet fruit and subtle toast flavors.

Bright yellow. Candied citrus fruits, poached pear and sweet butter on the nose. Supple and round, with plush flavors of orange, poached pear and marzipan. Slightly loose-knit, with good finishing breadth and a late note of warmth.
