The Roederer style is built on precision, patience and attention to detail, reflecting the spirit of perfectionism that is the mark of the House. That pefectionism is apparent in every cuvee, every nuance and subtle variation that conspires to give each champagne its pleasurable taste; the outstanding smoothness of the bubbles; a taste that balances fruitiness and freshness; a smooth a subtle structure, marked by a delicate vinosity that finishes on a sensation of fulness. The jewel of the House is Cristal, created in 1876 for Tsar Alexander II. This is champagne at its finest, as inspired today as it has always been, the embodiment of elegance and purity.
A salmon pink colour with golden tints, produces a persistent stream of delicate bubbles. It has an intense fruitiness with a blend of red fruits (Morello cherry), blood oranges, and peach, with slightly candied notes. Nuances of pastries emerge. The palate is round and fruity, marked by grapefruit and citrus zest. Its full body and density are sustained by the almost limestone freshness: the freshness and texture blend to give the wine its persistence. The effervescence integrates well into the juicy and concentrated envelope produced by the exceptionally mature flesh of the Pinot Noir fruits. Fine notes of lightly roasted cocoa beans add generosity and create a sensation of harmony.
