Louis Roederer, Cristal 1996

Louis Roederer, Cristal 1996

RRP £450

From the 2006 original-disgorgement release, this 100% Chardonnay is displaying smoky, toasted notes, with a hint of gingerbread and apricot jam aromas. It’s a big and bold style, with plenty of rich fruit and an impressive creamy texture. Complex and with many layers, this has fantastic grip and tension on the finish. Examples such as this beauty are a great reminder not to rush to drink your Cristal.
