What to expect


*This special item comes from our private cellar. Please add 2 days to our delivery time frame. 

- A refined and elegant rosé. 

- Colour is light, bright pink with copper tints.

- Chalk is here at its most charming, creating energy, refinement and powdered  texture. The ultimate finesse! 

For its Rosé champagnes, Louis Roederer combines the two methods used in the region, maceration and blending. A little Chardonnay juice poured into a Pinot noir maceration and fermented together to achieve the perfect harmony. The wine is aged for 6 years in the cellars and left for a minimum of 8 months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity. The dosage is 8 g/l. 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay. 12% of reserve wines. No malolactic fermentation.

2009 was 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.

The bouquet is both elegant and deep, with dark berries (blackcurrant) and fruits of the forest (blackberry, wild strawberries). There is also a hint of perfectly ripe Morello cherry. Reminiscent of concentrated tangy jam. The immediate effect on the palate is velvety, silky and enchanting - characteristic of the great Pinot noir from Ay, simultaneously intense with aromas and with a tight structure, all the while remaining delicate, subtle and ethereal.

Cristal Rosé 2009 is grandiose, with the finesse and elegance of a prima ballerina!

About the house


Food Suggestion 

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.

Anything spectacular.
