Description

The very first Cuvée de Prestige of Louis Roederer's Champagne House was created in 1876 and named ‘Cristal’. Ever since, the subtleness and elegance of Cristal have forged Louis Roederer’s reputation for excellence.

Made from Grand Crus of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the Montagne de Reims, Marne Valley and Cote des Blancs with 32% fermented in large oak casks, weekly batonnage and no malolactic fermentation. Aged for an average of five years on the lees in bottle before a further 8 months after disgorgement,

This vintage is golden yellow in colour with glistening gold tints. Incredibly dynamic effervescence, with rich aromas of zesty and candied citrus fruit, white flowers, roasted hazelnut, Madagascar vanilla, fresh pastry and subtle smoke. A delicious, concentrated and chalky palate with a silky, mouth-coating texture. Try with flavourful fish, pastry dishes, lemon desserts.

Louis Roederer inherited the Champagne House in 1833, and took a visionary approach to enriching his vines and mastering every stage of the wine’s creation. He forged the wine’s unique style, character, and taste and acquired some of Champagne’s grand cru vineyards to ensure the best care from soil to bottle. They now have 410 select parcels across 240 hectares of land.
