Cristal Rosé 2008 - Louis Roederer

Louis Roederer

Cristal Rosé 2008


Both of Louis Roederer’s Cristal wines from 2008 are absolutely stunning. When it comes to the Rosé all of the critics agree that this wine is wonderful to drink now, but has incredible ageing potential, making it a superb gift or anniversary present…

  • 99+ points, “Fresh and utterly brilliant… a wine that will age effortlessly for many, many decades to come.” – Antonio Galloni
  • 96+ points, “Pure but textured, perfectly ripe, round, luscious and mouth-filling Champagne with power and concentration as well as a crystalline, elegant precision and stunning, citrusy freshness.” – Wine Advocate
  • 19.5 points, “Subtle and beautifully balanced. As much of a treat as the white version, if a tiny bit softer.” – Jancis Robinson

2008 is being lauded as the best since 2002, maybe even better, which makes this an incredible proposition considering that world-renowned Champagne critic Richard Juhlin says: “Every vintage is stunning. Buy all the Roederer wines you come across.”

Established in 1776, Louis Roederer is one of the few remaining independent, family-owned Champagne houses. By 1876 the House had achieved such a reputation for quality that the second Louis Roederer was asked by Tsar Alexander II to create a new Champagne, Cristal, for the exclusive use of the Russian Tsars. The Rosé was first launched almost 200 years later in 1974 and has been adored ever since. Made from four of Louis Roederer’s finest biodynamic Grand Cru plots in Aÿ, Avize and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, it’s a blend of approximately 56% Pinot Noir and 44% Chardonnay. It has spent eight years on the less and eight months resting in the bottle, and it displays its awesome pedigree, stunning salinity and zesty pink grapefruit, yuzu, chalky minerality, redcurrant, wild strawberry and toasted hazelnuts. It’s a wonderful food wine, but Harvey Nichols loves to drink this on its own to give it our full undivided attention.
