Cristal Louis Roederer Vintage 2009 blanc 150 cl

A continental, sunny year with a real winter that was very cold and dry followed by a glorious sun-filled summer and almost no rain in August and September. All this meant traditional vine growth, excellent health and remarkable grape ripeness for the production of dense, fruity and delicious wines. 2009 is an obvious addition to the select group of brilliant and accomplished Champagne vintages with a light, sunny character.

The Louis Roederer winery has been owned by the same family since the company was founded in Reims in 1776. Today it is one of the three most important independent champagne houses. Since January 2006, Frédéric Rouzaud, the direct descendant of Louis Roederer, has continued the company's philosophy of quality as Président-Directeur Général.

Cristal is a blend of Grand Crus from the Montagne de Reims, the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs. The wine is aged for six years in the cellars and left for a minimum of eight months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity. 

60% Pinot noir, 40% Chardonnay

Yellow gold in colour with amber tints and persistent, fine and lively bubbles 

Rich, radiant and totally seductive, the 2009 Cristal possesses remarkable depth and striking purity. I have often felt that Cristal is released too young, but that is not at all the case with the 2009, a Champagne that is absolutely glorious today. The ripeness of the vintage comes through in spades in the wine’s luxurious, enveloping personality. I remember tasting the vins clairs and the Cristal blend back in the spring of 2010. The finished wine is every bit as alluring as those early tastings suggested it would be. The 2009 is a superb Cristal in the making.
