Undoubtedly, this is the vintage that marks the apogee of the famous subtle yet powerful sparkling wines of the Cristal family, produced by this French winery. On this occasion, Louis Roederer Cristal 2009, based on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, stands out for its balance, its sparkling evanescence and its elegance.

With a soft texture, this champagne combines notes of white fruits and citrus with mineral touches from the Chardonnay variety. The Louis Roederer winery, with 240 hectares on the best terroirs of the French Champagne region, presents this sparkling wine aged for six years in the cellar and rested for eight months after the disgorging phase. A champagne that is packaged in a sophisticated glass bottle with a flat bottom, whose name pays tribute to this material that emanates light and transparency.

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...

4 /5

- 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.

Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Blanc 2009

I made an order of wine by mail.
Its intense colour attracted me. Delicious aromas of yeast and bakery. Reminded me of burned wood and it was a pleasant taste.

3/5

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.

4/5

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.
