Louis Roederer Cristal 2008
As the Cristal 2008 showed impressive personality, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Cellar Master, decided to extend its ageing to ten years. This has endowed this vintage with remarkable maturity and contributed to its surprising and exacting temperament.
JAMES SUCKLING - 100 POINTS
“With staggering density and impressive balance, this is one of the greatest Roederer Cristal ever made. It’s a wine for the long term, and it’s best to leave it for six or seven years in the cellar before drinking. However, the vibrant youth of this great Champagne is hard to be patient with. Simply put, it’s great to drink anytime.”
WINE ENTHUSIAST - 100 POINTS
“This latest incarnation of the famous brand is a superb wine. It is on par with, maybe even better than, the already legendary 2002. Its balance is impeccable, apple and citrus flavors working with the tight minerality to give a textured yet fruity wine. Produced from Louis Roederer’s own vineyards which are mainly biodynamic, the wine has its own intense purity and crispness. It has amazing potential and is likely to age for many years.
