  • "Time has worked its magic and Cristal 2015 has emerged triumphant. It is ready to be enjoyed in its youth but can also be further cellar aged to allow it to attain the complexity of a magnificent maturity." It is a radiant Cristal champagne that is emerging, already quite a charmer yet still with such immense potential ahead of it. Of Domaine Cristal’s 45 historical vineyard plots, only 39 were selected to go into the final blend this year, those in which the grapes reflected the true identity of this unique wine: purity of fruit, remarkable finesse, and elegant length.

Only Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Roederer's 10 most celebrated Crus are used in the production of this legendary cuvée. The grapes from 410 parcels are pressed on site and the resulting juices are preserved according to the parcel of origin. A precise selection process and plot by plot vinification ensures the orgins of the grapes. The contents of the 450 small stainless steel tanks are tasted daily and are classified into families of aromas, flavours and characteristics. This tasting and reclassification is ongoing as the wines gradually mature and develop their own characteristics. Cristal is only produced from truly great vintages in which the ripeness of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes provide the precise balance that distinguishes this cuvee.

Powerful and complex, revealing aromas of yellow fruit, finely-roasted almonds and citrus fruits. Soft, juicy, with a chalky freshness- the palate is energetic and intense, giving the wine an elegant yet powerful texture and a sappy, saline finish.
