Disgorged October 2016 and will be the first Cristal to be released ten years from harvest when it is offered in 2018. 35 parcels used from a possible 45 in this vintage. The assemblage is 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay. This is so fresh and tense and mineral with extremely exuberant chardonnay notes on the nose of white peach, lemon and yellow grapefruit, and hints of almost brambly sous bois aromas. The yeast characters are also super fresh, and there are subtle woody notes, with a hint of vanilla bean and light spices. The palate is super long, and very pure, powerful and focused. It drives deep and taut. Pinot noir is a strong core and the chardonnay sits at the edge offering lemon and white nectarine sorbet flavors. Staggeringly concentrated, yet the balance makes it seem airy and light. Acidity is perfectly positioned, and the power is intense and long. This is an ultra precise Cristal, finishing with a mere suggestion of savoriness and warmth to come. Impressive on release, this will be at its best drinking from 2025.

Champagne, Louis Roederer, Cristal 2008 i Gaveæske

Champagne, Louis Roederer, Cristal 2008 – Louis Roederer arvede Champagne huset I 1833. Han formede vinens unikke stil, karakter og smag.

I midten af det 19. århundrede købte Louis Roederer nogle Champagne grand cru vinmarker. Denne tilgang stod i skrap kontrast til datidens udførsel af champagne produktion. I 1870 begyndte Louis Roederer Champagne huset at eksportere til USA og til Tsar Alexander ll of Russia.

Den allerførste Cuvée de Prestige. Den blev lavet i 1876 og fik navnet Cristal. Lige siden har den elegante Cristal sikret Louis Roederers ry af excellence.

The Louis Roederer House forblev en uafhængigt, familieejet virksomhed, og bliver i dag ledet af Jean-Claudes søn Frédéric Rouzaud, som er syvende generation. Med den samme tålmodighed og stålfast tro på kreativitet, er The Louis Roederer Houses oppe på en eksport af 3 millioner flasker om året til hele verden.
