About This Wine

It is, perhaps, the most famous wine in the world.

It is Cristal, the sparkling wine from Champagne Louis Roederer, and the 2009 vintage is special, indeed. As cellar master Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon describes it, “Cristal is a wine of pure pleasure and a sophisticated gastronomic wine. [It] is both powerful and delicate, combining subtlety and precision.”

The House’s first vintage was 1876, and was crafted to satisfy the demanding tastes of Tsar Alexander II, who asked Louis Roederer to reserve the best cuvee for him every year. It was delivered in a flat-bottomed, transparent lead-crystal bottle, after which the wine was named.

Now, this sublime blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, 40% of which came from biodynamic vineyards, is a true sparkling star and the ultimate special occasion wine. Made and released only in the best vintages, the 2009 Cristal should keep for many years without losing its character, freshness or specialness.
