ROEDERER CRISTAL LIBRARY RELEASE
Why Buy: Two of the greatest Champagne vintages from the past three decades, and directly sourced from one of the enduring legends of the wine world: the 100-point Cristal 2008 and the 98-point Cristal 2002.
What They're Saying: "A perfect wine," Jeb Dunnuck wrote of the 100-point Cristal 2008, "and Champagne simply does not get any better ... [M]ajestic, profound, legendary." Reviewing the Cristal 2002, James Suckling awarded 98 points, calling it "very powerful, very concentrated ... very expressive [and] full of life."
The Story: Roederer is as old as the United States. Founded in 1776, it remains one of only a handful of independent, family-operated estates in Champagne. The secret of its longevity? That its production methods – slow, labor-intensive, exacting – have changed so very little since the house opened two-and-a-half centuries ago. Grapes, sourced from the three main Champagne growing zones (the Côte des Blancs, the Montagne de Reims, and the Vallée de la Marne), are still hand-picked and fermented in small batches, and the blending is done with exceeding and exquisite care.
Our Tasting Notes: The two Cristals = luxury itself; you could take a getaway island vacation, or you could buy a bottle of Cristal and escape your cares and worries all the same.
Fun Fact: For most of its history, Cristal was largely the drink of kings and heads of state, and was not commercially available until 1945.
What to Pair Them With: Oysters, caviar, cheeses, lobster tail, sushi, and, really, any dish of richness and intensity; Roederer will lift them all.
Our Guarantee: We always buy and source direct, so rest assured: your Champagnes will arrive in your hands with pristine provenance. Secure your order today!
