1 jeroboam (3L) Louis Roederer Cristal 2009
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 4/29/2022
In 1876, Tsar Alexander II - already a great lover of Louis Roederer wines - asked Louis Roederer to ‘take the exercise still further‘ and create a cuvée for his personal use which was unique, in terms of both its style and the bottle. Louis Roederer offered him an exceptional crystal bottle, holding the fruit of vines selected from the seven great crus on his estate. The chardonnay and pinot noir grapes provide the subtle, precise balance that has now become synonymous with the leading prestige cuvée of Champagne. Cristal is Louis Roederer’s flagship cuvée. It was created in 1876 and is composed of Grand Crus from the Montagne de Reims, the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs.

Cristal 2009 is made with 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay. 16% of the wines matured in wood (oak barrels) with weekly batonnage and no malolactic fermentation. Matured for six years in cellars and with eight months of resting after disgorgement. Dosage for the 2009 vintage is 8 g/L. In this Cristal 2009, there is a genuine force of life, an invitation to pleasure, and at the same time great depth and crystalline purity.
