The Story

Cristal Rosé was first born a hundred years after the original Cristal, in 1974. It is an intriguing and particular prestige cuvée rosé, as it has the palest colour, yet a contrastingly fleshy, fruity, well-built palate of amazing freshness. Its secret is in the 60 per cent Pinot Noir from two hectares of Roederer’s own old-vine vineyards in Aÿ, Bonotte-Pierre-Robert and La Côte du Moulin, which are now cultivated according to biodynamic principles. It is these ripe, concentrated grapes that give the wine its delicate hue via the saignée, or bleeding method. Then 30 per cent of Côte des Blancs Grand Cru Chardonnay from Le Mesnil sur Oger and Avize is added to give spine and elegance.

Written Notes

Light salmon rose colour with refined bubbles. Very delightful nose with strawberries, bisquit and hints of toastiness. Very crisp light-bodied wine with a persistant and mouth-capturing mousse, reflecting marked minerality and lovely brioche flavours that are enhanced by delicate strawberry aromas. Long, lingering finish.

Magnificent as always. Powerful and rich with a distinctive tone of toffee in both fragrance and taste. A sparklingly colorful firework display of the exquisitely fruity aromas mixed with elegant notes of mineral. Excellent!

It was on to Veritas for an after-party, and Big Boy was there waiting with a magnum of 1982 Louis Roederer Cristal Rose. He immediately hailed it as ‘very winy’ or it might have been ‘very wiry’ or maybe he was calling me ‘very whiny’…yup, it was that time of the night. The Cristal Rose was meaty and sturdy, lingering like great sex, possessing superb structure and that Rose goodness.
