Louis Roederer Cristal 2005 75cl / 12%
A bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal from the 2005 vintage, a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay.
'So powerfully scented that it perfumed the room on opening. Meaty, savoury nose. Not at all sweet. Bone dry and upright somehow. Very appetising - not at all rich. A seriously good aperitif champagne though not one of the most concentrated Cristals. Impressive persistence though. 18/20' Jancis Robinson MW, 2015 (tasted from magnum)
