2005 Cristal Champagne, Louis Roederer
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
The breadth given by the partial fermentation in wood and the exceptional intensity of the fruit make this a perfect food champagne. As the wine is still young it is best with fish courses.
Cristal bursts from the glass with fresh hazelnut and apple scents. Elegant, deep, and silky- textured, this medium to full-bodied beauty is immensely concentrated, pure, packed with apple flavours, and astoundingly long in the finish.
