Champagne Louis Roederer Overview
+
Cristal Rosé is the rarest champagne that Louis Roederer produces and it is produced according to the highest standards of winemaking, requiring a rigorous selection of crus, vintages, grapes and wine. The best grapes from Louis Roederer own Grand Cru vineyards, primarily those of Aÿ for the Pinot Noir, and Le Mesnil sur Oger and Avize for the Chardonnay, contribute exclusively to the cuvée Cristal Rosé. Exceptionally, these vines lie on limestone soil and in the best years, achieve extraordinarily mature fruit with a crystalline purity of acidity corresponding perfectly to the Cristal style. Uniquely, the vineyards today are cultivated according to biodynamic principles.

2007 was a mostly warm year, characterised by unexpected and major weather events. A warm spring was followed by a cool summer. Drought had returned by the end of August. The end of the ripening process was excellent, and the harvests took place in ideal conditions. Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé 2007 is the first vintage in which all of the fruit was farmed according to biodynamic principles.

A light pink wine with a fine stream of bubbles. Initially on the nose, hints of floral and orange zest. On the palate, an intense and concentrated blend of flavours fills the mid palate.

Grape Varieties: 56% Pinot Noir, 44% Chardonnay
Dosage: 9.5 g/L

“The 2007 Cristal Rosé opens with the most captivating, extraordinary bouquet imaginable. Sweet, exquisite and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2007 is intense yet weightless, with extraordinary overall balance and remarkable finesse. Today, the 2007 Cristal Rosé is a wine of pure seduction. There is little doubt the 2007 is a great Cristal Rosé in the making. This is the first vintage in which all of the fruit was farmed according to biodynamic principles. According to winemaker Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, biodynamic farming has brought increased aromatic presence in the fruit and also given the Pinot a bit more intensity than normal, so much so that in 2007 the blend is 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay as opposed to the 60/40 split that has been more typical over the years. In 2007, the fruit was picked in August, which is also unusual, but bud break got off to an early start, so the growing season turned out to be longer than the classic 100-day period that is typical from bud-break to harvest. All of that means the 2007 Cristal Rosé is a much more classic-feeling wine that one might have expected.”
