the ultimate Champagne to be produced by Champagne Louis Roederer, builds upon
the 200-year tradition of fine winemaking that has made Roederer French
Champagnes amongst the most sought-after in the world. For connoisseurs the
world over, there is nothing finer than Cristal. Jewel in the Louis Roederer
crown, cuvée CRISTAL remains faithful to the value which inspired it in 1876
when, especially created for Tsar Alexander II, it sought to epitomize the
elegance and purity of Champagne. Cristal is produced in accordance with strict
production criteria. Vinified and aged in oak, Cristal shows a delicate vinosity.
Assemblage: 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay
The 2005 vintage was a year of marked contrasts between seasons and regions. Following a fairly harsh winter, 2005 had a mild spring with relatively warm temperatures all year long. Cristal is made from grands crus from the Reims mountains, the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs. Matured for an average of 5 years in the cellars, it is left to rest for 8 months after disgorging to complete its maturation. Dosage is adapted to each vintage, at between 8 and 10 g/l. 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay.
Vibrant and mouthwatering, this offers a range of patisserie pear and apple fruit, candied lemon zest, pastry dough and marzipan notes set on a finely detailed texture, which imparts a great deal of finesse. A long finish, sustained by tremendous aromatic persistence and a fine
freshness. A wine of great purity, a perfect fusion of power and finesse
