About the Wine

Long the darling of Kings and celebrities, Roederer’s Cristal bottling showcases the best of Champagne. The wine is robust, rich, and yeasty--aromas of fresh croissants, baked white peach, Meyer lemon, and cream come together in a Cristal worthy of its Tête-de-Cuvée status

Already glowing with incredible complexity and consistently high ratings from critics, this is a truly stellar bottling that combines Roederer’s own vineyards with the best growers in the region to make a stellar Champagne. A true wonder of Champagne terroir and exceptional winemaking this is THE bottle for celebrations big and small, don’t miss out! 

After almost one decade of cellaring, these bubbles are showing gorgeous purity of fruit and distinct minerality, and this wine is only going to get better in the next twenty years. A combination of not one or two, but SEVEN Grand-Cru vineyards, including some of Roederer’s estate vineyards,

The 2014 is a remarkable Champagne. Expertly blended with 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, the 2014 bottling showcases the chalky soils of Champagne, which remain unclouded by malolactic fermentation. A showstopper on any table where it appears, don’t pass up this golden offer! 

Very rare. Very limited. 

Tasting Notes: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay.

This vivid Champagne shows up-front and linear definition, thanks to rapierlike acidity, with finely meshed flavors of ripe black cherry and mandarin orange fruit, raw almond, anise and cardamom spice as well as a touch of honeycomb, which all unfurl and expand on the fine, creamy palate. Sleek acidity continues through to the finish, with additional racy character provided by a streak of minerally saline and chalk, which gains momentum through the midpalate and rings out on the well-cut, lasting finish. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2040. ~98 Wine Spectator, #10 Top Wine of 2022

Sourced from 39 plots, the 2014 Champagne Cristal is 60% Pinot Noir and the remainder Chardonnay, with 32% aged in oak, and it has 7 grams per liter dosage. It is highly expressive of classic elegance and purity, revealing aromas of crushed rock, almond croissant, and perfume of citrus blossoms. The palate is hyper-refined in its mousse, with pinpoint bubbles, a subtly rounded mid-palate, an irresistible chalky texture, and energy throughout its long and floral finish. Everything about this feels perfectly tailored. Drink 2024-2044. ~98 Jeb Dunnuck, #30 Top 100 2022

Still young, with toast aromas and shining white-fruit flavors, the latest release of Cristal is just setting out. A dry, tight core of intense flavors are shot through with minerality from the pure chalk soil of the 45 individual parcels in the blend. Drink this wine from 2025. Organic. ~97 Wine Enthusiast

An enlightened expression from a season of extremes, this has intensity, ripeness and depth of fruit that is underpinned by chalk soil-derived structure and freshness. Complex nose with lemon and grapefruit aromas, as well as closed red apple, blood orange, light biscuit spices and toasted hazelnuts. Super fresh. The palate starts pithy and fleshy with pink grapefruit, blood orange, red apple, sliced strawberry and nectarine. Expansive and mouth-filling build that is driven by concentrated fruit, Then it tightens and turns to a more mineral edge, before smoothly honed phenolics finish it long. It is 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay, 32% oak fermentation in those same proportions, no chaptalization, no malolactic and a dosage of 7g per liter. From organically farmed grapes. Very complex, it strikes a natural balance and is very drinkable already, though will develop well for more than a decade in the cellar.”~97 James Suckling

The rollercoaster growing season of 2014 is reflected to perfection by the innate tension here; ripe citric fruit and even a touch of exoticism (mango and fig) tempered by a fine shard of acidity and a lifted ethereal character, described paradoxically by chef de caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon as ‘weightless density. Purity, energy, and power make for very happy bedfellows, courtesy the chalky terroir and its organic husbandry. The texture is silky, the bubbles joyfully integrated and the finish resourceful and precise, its salinity deferential to the deep-digging roots.~95 Decanter
