    Cristal Vintage 2013

    A wine of pure pleasure, of great gastronomy, the Cristal cuvée is delicate and powerful at the same time, all in subtlety and precision. “Cristal 2013 is a great classic where maturity and freshness are harmoniously integrated and forged for the long term.” – Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Cellar Master

    The style is vinous and deep, characteristic of all the luminous nobility of Cristal, but combined with this chalky freshness that breaks through and stretches the material to give a slender fuselage of immense finesse.

    Presented in its luxurious box, the Louis Roederer Cristal is ideal for your gift-giving occasions.

    Tasting Notes

    Golden colour with bright reflections. Fine, regular and light effervescence.

    Powerful and complex bouquet where yellow fruits (mirabelle plum), juicy and ripe fruits (nectarine), citrus zests (candied orange) and dried fruits (hazelnut) finely toasted are intermingled. Powdery olfactory impression, at the same time sweet, chalky and elegant.

    Tactile, soft and generous on the palate. The effervescence gently vibrates the wine body which becomes suave, dense and juicy. But it is the freshness of the limestone that quickly sets the pace: the sweetness becomes energy and sapidity, stretching the wine into a fuselage that is both elegant and powerful. The fine, grainy tannins then reveal a winey, broad, calm and serene dimension. The finish is sapid and saline.

    Technical sheet

    Blend : Made only in "great years", when the maturity of the Chardonnay (about 40%) and the Pinot Noir (about 60%) that make it up is perfect, the Cuvée Cristal is aged for 6 years in the cellar and rests for 8 months after disgorgement.

    Vinification : The year 2013 was characterised by a particularly late cycle! The endless winter gave way to a very timid spring. Indeed, we had to wait until the first days of July to record full flowering in the vineyard... It had been a long time since we had seen that in Champagne! Fortunately, the summer was radiant with record-breaking sunshine and low rainfall, which was very favourable to the ripening of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The October harvest took place again in the cool autumn weather and produced elegant wines with a freshness that is a true classic. Crus: 45 exceptional terroirs : 1/3 "La Rivière" vineyard, 1/3 "La Montagne" vineyard, 1/3 "La Côte" vineyard. Wines in wood: 32% Malolactic fermentation: 0%.

    Ageing potential : Cristal can be kept for over twenty years without losing its freshness and character.

    Dosage : 8 g/litre
