Louis Roederer, Cristal Rose 2006
One of the highlights in this tasting, the 2006 Cristal Rosé is simply stunning. A vertical, towering wine, the 2006 Cristal Rosé is a thrill a minute, with a compelling interplay of aromatics and exquisitely layered fruit, all supported by a real feeling of phenolic intensity. While the 2007 is seductive, the 2006 is virile and imposing, with the statuesque lift of a Giacometti sculpture. All the elements meld together in a complete, alluring Champagne that will continue to drink beautifully for many decades. In 2006, the Pinot Noir was already being farmed biodynamically, while the Chardonnay was still under conversion.
The 2006 Cristal Rosé ages slower than the corresponding white Cristal and opens with very delicate red berry aromas on the deep and vinous nose. Highly delicate and elegant on the palate, this is a deep, dense, rich, chalky and pretty Burgundian rosé with juicy fruit and very fine tannins. Very long but always highly delicate. A gorgeous Cristal!
