Product Details
Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé 2008 was bottle-aged for 8 years before being left to rest for 8 months after disgorging in order to attain perfect maturity. The dosage is 8 g/l. Bright pink hue with delicate salmon-pink tints. Soft, even sparkle that fills the glass and gives the wine an almost creamy appearance. The delicate, subtle bouquet opens up with elegant aromas of flower petals and dried fruit and nuts, which then give way to zesty notes of red berries such as redcurrant and wild strawberry, characteristic of our old Pinot noir vines from Ay. The juicy and fleshy attack is underpinned by a direct, intense freshness. It displays simultaneously solid and fluid powdery notes harking back to the tannins in the pips which were perfectly ripe and lignified. There is an explosion of intense, rich, fresh flavours, complemented by notes of hazelnut and a powdery, almost oily, mouthfeel, characteristic of the finest Pinot noirs. There is an impression of chalkiness on the finish with zesty notes reminiscent of candied citrus and yuzu.

Cristal was created in 1876 at the request of Alexander II. Produced uniquely during the best years when the grapes have reached ultimate maturity. Cristal is a blend of Grands Crus from the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs. The wine is aged for 6 years in the cellars and left for a minimum of 8 months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity. The dosage is 8 g/l.
