Louis Roederer : Cristal Rosé 2009

All Vintages of this wine

2009 Louis Roederer Cristal

Louis Roederer release is yet another true delight for the palate. This offering is the pinnacle of Cristal: superb balance, shiny evanescence, elegant and harmonious combinations. This vintage requires at least six years of keep before revealing all its mysteries. This luxurious case makes for a sublime gift.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2009 Cristal Rosé is a rich and intense expression of Roederer's Cristal. Due to roughly 55% of old-vines Pinot Noir from Ay's calcareous clay soils and the sunny vintage, it has super luscious fruit with a velvety, caressing and powdery-chalky texture and great depth that gives it very good potential to age. There is also remarkable purity, finesse and tension in the energetic 2009, which cellar master Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon compares with the 2012 and the enchanting style of Vosne-Romannée. The 2009 Cristal Rosé is like a laser beam on the palate, very straight, sharp and precise yet elegant, intensely fruity and chalky. Very fine wild red fruit flavors feature on the nose, with crystalline freshness on the chalky palate. This is a gorgeous Cristal and another great 2009. In contrast to the 2009 white Cristal, the Rosé is perfect to drink now, perhaps only for a few months before it shuts down to start its real life in a couple of years. Tasted at the domaine in May 2018.
