Description

“This year will be my 30th harvest at Roederer and the 2008 is my best Cristal ever on the market,” said Roederer cellar master Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon about the latest release of Cristal, which was launched in London last night."

Received as an unwanted Christmas gift from a work client, who purchased it from Harrods. Louis Roederer credits the 2008 Vintage as their best. In original gift packaging (silk/satin lined box), including clear stickers on the "button" to open the case, cellophane wrapping around the bottle and an information booklet. Stored in a cool dark place in my apartment, always in the box.

Following description taken from Berry Bros & Rudd: "Let's start describing the 2008 Cristal technically first. It is a 60/40 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from 36 plots in seven grands crus: Verzy, Verzenay, Beaumont and Aÿ for the Pinot Noir and Mesnil, Avize and Cramant for the Chardonnay. Twenty-five percent of the wine was fermented in oak, and 16% underwent malolactic fermentation to moderate the fresh acidity of the 2008 vintage. The assemblage was bottled in May 2009. After 8.5 years on the second lees (longer than any Cristal before), the first release was disgorged in September 2017 with a relatively low dosage of 7.5 grams per liter."

Stephan Reinhardt - 18/06/2018. "With staggering density and impressive balance, this is one of the greatest Roederer Cristal ever made. It’s a wine for the long term, and its best to leave it for six or seven years in the cellar before drinking. However, the vibrant youth of this great champagne is hard to be patient with. Simply put, it’s great to drink anytime."
