Description

Created in 1974, 100 years after the original Cristal, the Rose bottling is produced using the saignee method of bleeding off juice after cold maceration. Made from only Grand Cru vineyards in Ay, the blend for this 2009 Cristal Rose is 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay with less than a third of the wine matured in oak tuns. The Roederer house style dictates no malolactic fermentation and a slightly higher 9gram dosage to achieve a very winey style of Champagne, with notes of blood orange, brine and toasted almonds. A spectacular and rare Champagne that deserves its premium price tag.
