This is an extremely rare champagne, therefore a 1 bottle per person limit exists.

Cristal Vinothèque 1999 celebrates the remarkable adventure of just a few bottles, laid down in Louis Roederer cellars for 20 years in the quest for perfect harmony. These cuvées have been bottle-aged for 7 years “sur lattes” (horizontal), and 7 years “sur pointes” (upside down, vertical) plus a further 4 years following disgorgement, (dosage 8 g/l). Cristal Vinothèque 1999 embodies Louis Roederer’s exploration of time deep inside their chalky cellars…the magic of graceful maturity.

Vintage 1999 was a stormy and windy year. The season began early and was followed by a warm, dry summer. Fortuitously this helped the vines to escape unscathed during some rain over harvest. 1999 gave powerful, concentrated, generous, and succulent wines which show a minerally vibrancy intermingled with distinctively citrus notes, oriental spice and roasted hazelnuts, on a seductive base of silky tannins and creamy, elegant effervescence.

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.

Made of 56% Pinot Noir and 43% Chardonnay.

Take this prestige cuvée to another level and serve with caviar. Take the caviar straight from the back of the hand so that you can appreciate its beauty. Please ensure that the wine is served in an Emperor tulip or a white wine glass to allow the cuvée to show you its true potential.
