Champagne Louis Roederer Cristal Brut 2012 (gift box)
The result of over 10 years of reflection and experimentation, Cristal 2012 is the first-born from this new ear of complete biodynamic viticulture. It is another absolutely stellar wine this flight of recent releases.
Region: Champage, France Rating: Antonio Galloni: 98/100 Robert Parker: 97/100
Tasting Note: In the glass, the 2012 is radiant and luscious, yet it possesses remarkable transparency and striking aromatic depth. Light tropical notes develop in the glass, giving the 2012 a real feeling of exotic beauty. The 2012 is the first vintage of Cristal done with 100% organically-farmed fruit, an approach introduced gradually starting with the 2007 that has profoundly changes Cristal, especially in its aromatic breadth. Two thousand twelve is the vintage where endless trials and experiments in farming and winemaking are fully realized. The 2012 is just stunning. It’s as simple as that. Dosage is just over 7 grams per liter, the lowest it has ever been for Cristal.
