    The most famous wine of the House of Louis Roederer was born in 1876 to satisfy the demanding taste of Tsar Alexander II. The emperor asked Louis Roederer to reserve for him each year the best vintage of the House, which he particularly appreciated. To accentuate its singularity, this exceptional champagne will be packaged in a flat-bottomed crystal bottle. From then on, it will bear the name of this precious material, exalting its transparency and its light. A wine of pure pleasure, of great gastronomy, the Cristal vintage is delicate and powerful at the same time, all in subtlety and precision. Like a new symphony, the 2015 Cristal vintage resonates with a different tone. Born on the Domaine Cristal, this iconic cuvĂ©e of the Louis Roederer Champagne House beats to the rhythm of the seasons, the climate and the work of the vineyard. Like a Burgundian wine, this Champagne wine is nourished by its soils, its vibration and the link that unites it with the sun and the light. Louis Roederer Cristal 2015 is made, for the first time since 2002, from all the parcels over twenty years old eligible to be blended into Louis Roederer’s iconic cuvee. In the vineyard dedicated to the Cristal cuvĂ©e, only the most beautiful parcels are usually selected, to capture only the most authentic beating heart of Cristal. To see the entire estate reflect the identity of this unique wine is rare. The 70 plots of land of the Cristal domain, cultivated in organic agriculture, ensure its permanence and its change every year. Everything that does not evolve perishes, everything that spins is lost… A wine of soils par excellence, a perfect echo of its terroir, Cristal 2015 emanates from parcels of land patiently constituted since 1845, worked to measure in a winegrower’s approach implementing daily virtuous practices such as massal selection, soft pruning, long fallow periods, biodynamic composts and methods inspired by the permaculture model, where the ecosystem adjusts its balance and connects Man to Nature. ” Cristal 2015 delivers intense and delicious scents assured of a superb energy, a magical vibration. It is a champagne of eternity which remains of a sovereign measure and balance, resonating of the limestone dimension of its soils more than of the solar character of the vintage. Still fully Cristal, intensely 2015, with immense ageing potential. “Jean-Baptiste LĂ©caillon, Cellar Master at Louis Roederer. The Louis Roederer Cristal vintage is ideal for your special occasions.

    The year 2015: the concentrated signature of a spectacular vintage. 2015 was a hot and sunny year, marked by episodes of heat and drought, relieved by the saving rains at the end of the summer which allowed the grapes to keep all their freshness. These climatic characteristics have thus forged juicy, ripe and concentrated grapes, totally balanced. Cristal 2015 takes full advantage of this contrasting meteorology, with a strong limestone temperament, capturing more than ever the vibration of its soils; a welcome paradox! Perfectly in line with the continental trend of the decade, the 2015 vintage thus ordered more than ever ripe and structured wines, crowned with an insolent freshness guided by its white soils. The purity of the chalk has emerged, revealed by the gentle and virtuous viticultural practices of the House, offering an ideal symbiosis between maturity and freshness.
    To the eye

    Golden color, intense, bright and shiny. The effervescence is dynamic, with an unceasing succession of clouds of fine bubbles.

    On the nose

    The nose first reveals echoes of yellow fruits and toasted almonds from the Chardonnay, combined with the juicy red fruits of the Pinot Noir.

    In the mouth

    The chalky character of the vintage gushes out in a tonic effervescence, vertical, with insistent freshness. The finish supported by lightly woody and saline notes gives the ensemble an ultimate sensation of delicacy and concentration.
    Cristal 2015 remains of a sovereign measure and balance, resonating with the limestone dimension of the soils more than the solar character of the vintage. It is a delicate and concentrated Cristal that is emerging, charming and promising.

    Food & champagne pairings
    Ideal operating temperature

    To appreciate all its finesse and aromas, champagne should be enjoyed chilled (but not iced). Depending on the cuvée, the ideal serving temperature is between 8 and 12°C.

    Potential of keeping

    Cristal can be kept for more than twenty years without losing its freshness and character.

    Assembly :

    Made only in the best years, when the maturity of the Chardonnay (40%) and the Pinot Noir (60%) which compose it is perfect, the Cristal cuvée ages 6 years in the cellar and rests 8 months after disgorging.
    Vinification :

    The Cristal vineyard is made up of 70 exceptional parcels, including 7 Grands Crus: 40% are planted with Chardonnay on the slopes of Avize (10 parcels), Cramant (11 parcels) and Mesnil-sur-Oger (9 parcels) and 60% are planted with Pinot Noir on the slopes of AĂż (10 parcels), Verzenay (17 parcels), Verzy (12 parcels) and Beaumont-sur-Vesle (1 parcel).

    Each parcel is cultivated and vinified separately; thus, each unit of place corresponds to a unit of taste. This parcel-based approach allows us to express the signature of the soil and the climate, the primary identity of the grape. The vats of the House are dimensioned to the surfaces, so that each entity of the Cristal vineyard, that is to say 45 plots, comes to be lodged exactly in each of the stainless steel or French oak vats.
    Dosage :
    7 g/liter
