The Louis Roederer Cristal 2008 is a remarkably balanced and refined Champagne, which can be kept for over twenty years without losing freshness, aroma and/or character. Unlike many other Champagne estates, Louis Roederer remains independent and family owned, with management being conducted by the 7th generation of the house.
Cristal is typically aged for six years in dedicated cellars and left for a further eight months after disgorgement. What makes Louis Roederer unique is that over 70% of their grapes are from their own estate vineyard, ensuring that the winemaking process is consistent in quality and produces complex flavours.
Considered as a young wine that has depth, richness and power that seamlessly come together to deliver an all-time favourite Champagne, the Louis Roederer Cristal 2009 offers layered and complex flavours, aromas of stone fruit, lemon zest, spice and a faint hint of sherry. Providing elegance and sophistication, the Cristal is the perfect accompaniment to any special occasion or celebration.
