Louis Roederer

A passion for great wines and a desire to compensate for the limits that the "château policy" naturally imposes on the development of Louis Roederer Champagne have, over the years, driven Jean Claude and then Frédéric Rouzaud to acquire an exclusive group of properties around the Champagne House...

Louis Roederer Cristal 2008

How did the Cristal? From a personal request, in 1876, Tsar Alexander II directly to Louis Roederer; He wanted to have a cuvée for its exclusive use and personal. Louis then proposed a crystal clear bottle in which to develop the best selection of 7 cru of his estate. Thus was born the Cristal, which took its name from the clear bottle with a flat bottom, at the time of crystal, used just from Roederer to bottle this great sparkling wine. The 2008 vintage is unique, able to impress all fans (and beyond!) To the intensity and aromatic quality that sets it apart. The grapes that go to the making of this prestige cuvee, which made him famous all over the world his name, come from vineyards classified 100% in the scale of crus, harmoniously divided between the most common areas of Champagne, all owned by the the Roederer winery. In the words of Jean Baptiste Lecaillon (chef de cave and general manager of Roederer): "In wine there is the beautiful texture of maturity along with clear gloss acidity combined with chalky notes crisper. Maybe the most of Cristal Cristal, a paradigm for those to come. it is drunk already very well today, it's a boy, but can age 20-30 years, it took him 10 years to open up and there are no doubts about his longevity.

Very good millesime

As in previous vintages: excellent!


- Cristal is a blend of Grand Crus from the Montagne de Reims, the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs. The wine is aged for six years in the cellars and left for a minimum of eight months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity.
- Yellow gold in colour with amber tints and persistent, fine and lively bubbles. Subtle on the nose with notes of citrus compote, candied apricots and honeysuckle. When aerated, notes of vanilla and cocoa bean emerge, with toasted hazelnut, hints of liquorice and even a touch of cinnamon.
- The palate is structured and energetic with chalky, cherry freshness and an almost mentholated brightness. The Cristal 2009 is delicate and etherial, exceptionally focussed and full of energy.
- Perfect with white fish such as monk fish, and white meats.
- A continental, sunny year with a real winter that was very cold and dry followed by a glorious sun-filled summer and almost no rain in August and September. All this meant traditional vine growth, excellent health and remarkable grape ripeness for the production of dense, fruity and delicious wines. 2009 is an obvious addition to the select group of brilliant and accomplished Champagne vintages with a light, sunny character.
- 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay.
