Product Description

The 2009 vintage of Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne is a beautiful golden yellow colour with hints of amber and a fine, persistent perlage.

The bouquet is subtle with notes of citrus compote, candied apricots and honeysuckle. A light aeration brings out notes of vanilla and cocoa bean, toasted hazelnut, liquorice and just the merest hint of cinnamon.

The palate is both structured and energetic; a chalky, cherry freshness with a pronounced brightness. Cristal 2009 is a rich, radiant and extremely seductive champagne, delicate, yet full of energy and exceptionally well balanced.

Louis Roederer Cristal champagne is created only during the very best years, when the grapes are of an unparalleled quality. The house draws on grands crus from the Montagne de Reims, the Marne Valley and the Cote des Blancs, ageing the wine for six years in the cellars and allowing to mature for a further eight months before releasing at the perfect maturity.

Cristal represents the most exceptional cuveé of the House of Louis Roederer. Crafted in 1876 at the request of the Russian Tsar Alexander II to satisfy his demanding tastes, this distinguished champagne was presented in a flat-bottomed transparent lead-crystal bottle so that the Tsar could be certain no one had tampered with it. The champagne continues to produced in this unique and iconic bottle today.

The champagne bottle is presented wrapped in a golden UV-light resistant cellophane wrap inside a Louis Roederer Cristal branded box.
