Champagne Louis Roederer Cristal 2009
Tasting Notes: Burnished gold tones glinting with orangey highlights; fine but ultra-energetic, rich and persistent bead. The nose is intense and bursting with gorgeous aromas typical of great Pinot Noir grapes. Flavors of stoned fruits (cherries), crystallized citrus peel (oranges), fresh almonds and sweet blossom (acacia) are reinforced by early hints of maturity. Witness scents of sweet, baked apples and spicy nuances that are characteristic of grapes from north-facing first great growths on the Montagne de Reims.
Robert Parker Rating: 96
Food pairing: Meant to be served with caviar.
