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.

An extraordinary balance, Cristal is a refined champagne, whose persistence on the palate remains unparalleled. Its silky texture reveals aromas of fruit, enhanced by a power which emanate mineral notes of white fruit and citrus. Crystal is a wine aging, which can be stored for more than twenty years without losing its freshness and character.

Reviews about Louis Roederer Cristal 2009

Very good millesime
Carmen Blanch

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.

Taste: High acid, much lemon flavor with a taste of pineapple on the final notes. Extremely good mousse.

Comment: Compared with 06 wins 06 large. 07 is a real lemon bomb. Too much citric acid and removes the complexity of the wine. However, still a very good champagne.

This fantastic jewel is remained still today faithful to the value that l' it has inspired in far away 1876, when Luis Roederer purposely created it like gift for the Zar Alexander II of Russia. All' visual examination cannot that crystalline being! The spuma it is rich with the most fine and interminable bollicine. The olfattive feelings are wide, intense that remember the warm bread crust, the fruit sand bank, the honey, the chocolate and delicate speziate feelings. Al palate is rich, satisfactory with a entusiasmanti concentration and length.
