Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé 2013 stands for a demanding vintage that could only be corked by experienced craftsmen like those of Louis Roederer. Here you can buy the popular champagne with a gift box.
The year 2013 was a real challenge in Champagne: The weather was very mixed, and instead of the heat typical of late summer, mild temperatures with little sunshine prevailed. The very lean harvest, however, showed a high degree of ripeness, giving the resulting champagnes full-bodied structures. The Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé 2013 in particular can live on this.
The assemblage of the wine consists of 56% Pinot Noir and 44% Chardonnay. Of these, 15% were vinified in oak barrels.
The Cristal Rosé 2013 in the glass is salmon-coloured with golden reflections and a delicate and durable mousse.
On the nose it is rather reserved with subtle, late aromas of red fruits (raspberries, wild strawberries and other wild berries), mandarins, yuzu, almonds and toasted notes. The bouquet is rounded off with delicate notes of bergamot and verbena.
The palate is captivating with the full-bodied fleshiness of the wine, which is kept wonderfully light thanks to the fine mousse. The fruitiness from the nose continues here and is accompanied by mineral acidity.
