A mythical, legendary cuvée
The 2014 vintage is characterised by its shifting climate. Spring was superb and very dry. It was followed by a very hot early summer with a scorching month of June. But from July onwards, the weather turned towards a more autumnal climate, with cool temperatures and rain. The sunshine returned during the month of September, combining heat and dry weather.
The vinification and ageing
The work in the vineyard is guided by ever more proficient viticultural practices which enables the grapes to reach both a perfect balance and an optimum ripeness level. The vinification is carried out in wood, for 32% of the wine. The dosage of this 2014 Cristal Champagne by Louis Roederer is 7 grams per litre.
Pinot Noir (60%) and Chardonnay (40%).
Tasting Note: Complex and intense bouquet disclosing candied citrus, yellow fruit, Williams pear, pollen and toasted almond. The delicately seductive bouquet shows intensity and well-honed precision
