Louis Roederer Cristal 2009 Vintage Champagne 75cl Gift Boxed 12% ABV
Presented in a new style, limited edition Cristal Gift Box with chrome opening, this really is a superb gift for any occasion. A wine of pure pleasure and sophisticated gastronomic wine, both powerful and delicate, combining subtlety and precision. The Cristal 2009 is delicate and ethereal, exceptionally focussed and full of energy.
Yellow gold in colour with amber tints and persistent, fine and lively bubbles. Subtle on the nose with notes of citrus compote, candied apricots and honeysuckle. When aerated, notes of vanilla and cocoa bean emerge, with toasted hazelnut, hints of liquorice and even a touch of cinnamon. The palate is structured and energetic with chalky, cherry freshness and an almost mentholated brightness.
