Brut, Cristal Vintage 2012, Louis Roederer, 75cl

384.00 /L

Aastal 1876, nõudis tsaar Aleksander II, et tema auks toodetud šampanjat peab serveerima kristall dekantrist. Sellest sai alguse idee kristallist kui ülima täiuslikuse ja harulduse sümbol. Vein laagerdub 6 aastat pärmi settel Louis Roederer’i keldrites ning peale seda veel 8 kuud pudelis. Cristal säilitab oma värskuse ja iseloomu ka üle kahekümne aasta vanusena. Cristal Vintage 2012 on kuldkollane šampanja, kerge merevaigu alatooniga. Kompleksne ja intensiivne aroom, kus on tunda suhkrustatud tsitrust, kollaseid puuvilju ja röstitud mandleid. Võimsa ja täidlase maitsega.

James Suckling – 98 Points

Such attractive, fresh, floral aromas here with fine bread, hints of white almonds and a lemon edge. White cherries and strong, chalky minerals, too. The palate has a very composed feel. Seamless and quite silky texture with effortless length and flow. Very fluid and composed. Very late, warming almond flavors. This is very long and smooth with a velvety finish. Super long pinot weight. Resolved and drinkable, but will age so well.

Vinous – 98 Points

The 2012 Cristal is another absolutely stellar wine this flight of recent releases. Rich, vinous and beautifully textured, the 2012 has been nothing short of magnificent on the three occasions I have tasted it so far. 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 even been for Cristal.
