Louis Roederer Cristal 2008 Vintage Champagne 75cl
Louis Roederer 2008 Vintage Champagne 75cl is from a vintage like no other in Champagne. 2008 was a continental year in Champagne with intense, hot weather. During September, the days were beautifully sunny whilst the nights were nice and cool, supplying a perfect combination to create great ripeness and acidity.
This ideal weather lead Louis Roederer Chef de Cave Jean-Baptiste-Lecallion to make the decision of releasing the Cristal 2009 before the 2008 in order for Cristal 2008 to have more time on the lees. This extra time meant the Louis Roederer Cristal 2008 is the first vintage to undergo a full 10 years of ageing, a process which has lent the finished product a remarkable level of maturity.
