Reimsi linnas paiknev Louis Roederer on koos Bollingeriga üks väheseid siiani pereomanduses olevaid šampanjamajasid. Neile kuulub Champagne piirkonnas 240 hektarit, olles sellega üks suurimaid veiniaedade omanikke. Roedereri lipulaev on ainult parimatel aastatel valmistatav aastakäigu šampanja - Cristal - mille ajalugu ulatub tagasi 19. sajandisse kui seda valmistati vaid Vene tsaari tarbeks.

2009. aastakäik on valmistatud 60% Pinot Noir ja 40% Chardonnay viinamarjadest, mis pärinevad Montagne de Reims, Marne ja Côte des Blancs grand cru aedadest. Cristali valmistamiseks kasutatavad veiniaiad on väga kriidise pinnasega, mis annab talle iseloomuliku elegantsuse ning mineraalsuse. Veinipuude keskmine vanus on 35 aastat. Esmane kääritamine toimub 85% terasmahutites ning 15% suurtes tammevaatides. Veini küpsemisperiood pärmisettel kestab 6 aastat ning dosage on 9 grammi liitri kohta. Malolaktilist kääritamist ei rakendata.

Värvuselt kuldkollane, merevaigu varjunditega, väga peen, elav ja püsiv mull. Aroom on väga elegntne, tunda tsitrusviljade kompotti, karamelliseeritud aprikoosi ja suhkruroogu, dekanteerimisel lisanduvad vanilje ja kakaouba koos röstitud sarapuupähliga, delikaatne lagrits ja isegi kaneeli. Maitse on täidlase struktuuriga, väga elav ja energiline, kriidine mineraalsus, värske kirss, lausa mentoolilaadne erksus. Delikaatne, kuid erakordse fookusega ja tulvil energiat. Ideaalne koos merkuradiga või kvaliteetse linnulihaga.


The latest incarnation of this famous Champagne now comes from Roederer's own vineyards, a good portion of which are run on biodynamic lines. This still-young wine has great depth and richness, a beautiful balance between ripe fruit and crisp texture that make it alive, crisp and bright. As it matures, it will deepen and become even more intense. Drink now if you must, but preferably wait until 2019. 97 points Wine Enthusiast


A very rich and full-bodied Cristal that harks back to 2006 or 1989 in style. It's round and rich, which underlies the ripeness of the vintage. Lots of dried-apple and pineapple character with bread dough and flan flavors. The bubbles are so fine you almost don't notice them. Very vinous style. 97 points James Suckling


Translusent, shimmering gold indicates a wine of poised ripeness; beautiful scents of orange blossom merge with sense of great chalky terroir. The purity and sublime texture of the mouthfeel owes a lot to non-malolactic winemaking which maintains freshness after the uninterrupted warmth of summer to harvest end. Also it also shows the essential true fruit now and for 20 years to come. Long lingering finish. A great supremely elegant Champagne. 97 points Decanter


The 2009 Cristal literally shimmers on the palate, showing great depth and purity in its sumptuous layers of fruit. It is a magnificent wine endowed with superb length and exceptional overall balance. The 2009 Cristal is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. The percentage of wine aged in oak is 15%, which is down slightly from previous vintages. 94-96 points The Wine Advocate


Rich, creamy and radiant, the 2009 Cristal captures all of the natural generosity of the vintage while also retaining a good bit of freshness and aromatic intensity. Immediate and totally sensual in its allure, the 2009 will drink well with minimal cellaring. All things considered, at this stage, the 2009 comes across as relatively restrained for a wine from a warm year. 96 points Vinous / Antonio Galloni


White peach and acacia blossom aromas accent the flavors of poached apple, gingersnap biscuit, pastry cream and spun honey in this harmonious Champagne. The satiny mousse caresses the palate, while firm, focused acidity drives the lasting finish. Drink now through 2030. 95 points Wine Spectator
