Cristal Rosé 2008 comes very close to the ideal of this cuvée: perfect maturity combined with crystal freshness!

- +

Cristal Rosé 2008 has been aged for 8 years in bottle and also benefits from a minimum of 8 months rest after disgorgement to perfect its maturity. The dosage is 8 g/l.

To elaborate its rosé champagnes, Louis Roederer has developed over the years a way that is unique in Champagne. Called "infusion" in the House, it allows to extract the juicy and ripe side of the Pinots Noirs while preserving a great freshness. Thus, some Chardonnay juices are poured into a Pinot Noir maceration, to ferment together and integrate perfectly.

Bright pink color with some salmon reflections. Soft and regular effervescence that starts all over the glass and gives an almost creamy appearance. Delicate, subtle bouquet where, at first nose, the fine scents of flower petals and dried fruits mingle. Then come the small acidic red fruits of currant and wild strawberry which characterize our old vines of Pinots Noirs d'Ay.

It was in 1833 that Louis Roederer inherited his uncle’s House : the Dubois Father and Son Champagne House in Reims, founded in 1776.

In 1876, Louis Roederer II who succeeded his Father in 1870, created, upon request of Alexander II for the Russian tsar’s exclusive consumption, the Crystal vintage, a superior vintage that is an innovation for Champagne.

Then in 1908, tsar Nicolas II gave the title of “official supplier to His Imperial Majesty’s Court”. The crystal bottles carry the tsar’s coat of arms as a medallion.

The House kept growing under the watchful gaze of the next generations, among which Jean-Claude Rouzaud, who managed the House from 1980 to 2006, and Frédéric Rouzaud, his son, the current manager since 2006.

The vineyard spreads on 240 hectares, dispatched on the Reims mountain, the Marne valley, and the Côte des Blancs. Pinot Noir is the main variety.
