Description :

The 1999 Cristal bursts from the glass with fresh hazelnut and apple scents. Elegant, deep, and silky-textured, this medium to full-bodied beauty is immensely concentrated, pure, packed with apple flavors, and astoundingly long in the finish

Champagne Roederer

Maison Roederer Cuvée Cristal RoedererA key event in the success of Roederer was breaking the Russian market, as achieved by the elder Louis Roederer. As a result the blue-blooded Russians found themselves partial to the odd glass of Roederer Champagne, so much so that Tsar Alexander II requested that a special cuvée be created; one fitting to grace the table of a royal family. And so Louis Roederer II produced Cristal, regarded by many as the first prestige cuvée.

What made this sweet blend so distinctive was the packaging, being bottled in clear crystal rather than ordinary glass. It was a business coup for the Roederer family, although unfortunately one that backfired. The deposition of the Tsar that came with the October Revolution in 1917 meant that the Roederer’s lost their market. They had a lot of unpaid bills, and a large stock of sweet Champagne. But the firm survived, and remains in the hands of Roederer’s descendants to this day.

The range of wines is largely sourced from Roederer’s own vineyards, which provide the majority of the raw materials required. There are very good non-vintage cuvées including Brut Premier, the Extra Dry, Grand Vin Sec and the demi-sec Carte Blanche. These are all Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a roughly 2:1 proportion, plus a dash of Pinot Meunier. The vintage wines include the Brut Vintage, Rosé Vintage and an oft superb Blanc de Blancs. The latter is obviously 100% Chardonnay, the other two are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in an approximately 7:3 proportion. The rosé is made by addition of red wine rather than the saignée method. And, of course, the aforementioned Cristal, which is also available as a rosé. Cristal is usually an approximately equal blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; the rose contains more Pinot Noir, and again is made by addition of red wine rather than by skin contact

 

 

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 98 points
"One of the finest Champagnes I have ever brought to my lips, the 1999 Cristal bursts from the glass with fresh hazelnut and apple scents. Elegant, deep, and silky-textured, this medium to full-bodied beauty is immensely concentrated, pure, packed with apple flavors, and astoundingly long in the finish. Louis Roederer does not display a disgorgement date or consumer friendly lot number on its non-vintage Brut. This is regrettable as it has consistently been one of the finer bottlings in this category." (Dec 2005)

Wine Spectator : 91 points
"High-toned and floral, with hints of coconut and spice. Firm and lively. Needs a little time to integrate and resolve the fine mousse with the tactile finish. More backward and powerful than most 1999s, this has potential. Drink now through 2015." (Mar 2006)

Stephen Tanzer : 92+ points
"Light gold. Vibrant, tangy aromas of apple, pear, white peach and minerals. Wound tight right now, only reluctantly offering up flavors of fresh orchard fruits, herbs and pepper. Finishes zesty and long. Seems less deep than the 1997 bottling; is this just in a sullen, youthful stage? " (Jun 2006)
