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 two decades 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 2000 is a remarkable Champagne.. Expertly blended with 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, the 2000 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.

Reviews

From a difficult vintage with destructive hailstorms and botrytis, the 2000 Cristal opens with an elegant and delicate bouquet with brioche, ripe apple, green olive and iodine aromas. Complex and very salty, with oyster and umami flavors, this is a generous and very long Cristal that is excellent with Japanese food, such as sashimi for example, as chef de cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon said during the tasting in New York in November 2018. ~95WA
