Louis Roederer Cristal 2014 Champagne

Intense, fragrant bouquet of great purity.  Concentrated and candied citrus fruit mingle delicately with notes of grain and lightly roasted almonds.  The lovely sensation of big ripe fruit is balanced and lifted by energetic fresh tangy overtones.

2014 was a ‘weather waltz’, and one with clear, sharp contrasts! The spring was sunny and dry and ended with a heatwave in June; summer autumnal, cool and rainy; September was hot, sunny and very dry…. weather we would usually associate with the month of August.  The ‘key’ to the vintage lay in the soils as well as in the work carried out by the winegrowers.  The good drainage properties of the chalk on the lower-middle part of the hillside helped us greatly by allowing the excess water from the summer to drain away which limited any excess vigour in the vines.
