- An exceptional Magnum format: better ageing

- A piece of collection. Keep it in your cellar for a special moment.

When aerated, notes of vanilla-edged cocoa bean emerge, with toasted hazelnut, hints of liquorice and even a touch of cinnamon. The palate is structured, energetic and sculpted. An initial dense, ripe and silky sensation is amplified by the discovery of a chalky, cherry freshness, a powdered, almost mentholated brightness. A true quintessence of chalky soils offering a delicate tension. This sumptuous vintage 2008 develops a great power, concentration, relief, and a fiery temperament!

This house has serious pedigree and a long history of making outstanding wines. Roederer is still family owned and run and has a significant land holding of over 230 hectares allowing them to supply 70% of their grape requirements with excellent fruit. We are impressed by Louis Roederer’s increasing commitment to exploring biodynamics both with treatment of their vast vineyard holdings plus the recent acquisition of a 15 hectare biodynamic parcel from Leclerc Briant. A relatively small 3 million bottles per annum of production are exported, largely to the USA.

Blend is 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. Cristal is a blend of Grands Crus from the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs. The wine is aged for 10 years in the cellars and left for a minimum of 8 months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity. 16% of the wine vinified in oak casks. No malolactic fermentation. The dosage is 8 g/l.

Please note: This prestige cuvée comes from our private cellar to allow for extra-ageing. Please add 2 days to our shipping time.
