2008 Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Champagne Tasting Notes

Nose: The 2008 Cristal opens bright, super clear, fresh and pure on the exciting, absolutely fascinating nose with its fine, complex and elegant bouquet of gorgeously ripe and matured fruits, brioche and chalk expressions.

Palate: The palate is pure, lean, fresh and filigreed but concentrated, highly complex, full of tension and enormously vibrant. This is a great vin de terroir, a dense and elegant Super-Cristal that goes straight and precise as a laser beam over the palate but also has texture in the form of sensually fleshy fruit.

Finish: The endless and highly tensioned finish is complex, citrusy fresh, full of chalk and crystalline finesse.
