The distinctive qualities of each parcel are the result of great respect for nature. Louis Roederer’s philosophy is shared by Philippe Starck: both are engaged in a quest for authenticity.   The harvest from each parcel is pressed and vinified separately. Over the months, the wine is tasted and analysed by the oenologists; this provides them with an extensive aromatic palette that gives them a rich choice and enables them to develop blends under the watchful eye of the Cellar Master, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. This quest for authenticity matches Philippe Starck’s desire to collaborate on the development of a unique, finely tuned, and authentic cuvée. They decided to draw inspiration from river wines to create a straightforward, medium-dry, terroir-based champagne. Consequently, every measure was taken on the south-facing parcels of Pinot noir to nurture grapes that would attain great maturity, in order to obtain an excellent fruit that would require very minor corrective measures.

Light gold. Vibrant tangy aromas of apple pear white peach and minerals. Wound tight right now only reluctantly offering up flavors of fresh orchard fruits herbs and pepper. Finishes zesty and long. Seems less deep than the 1997 bottling; is this just in a sullen youthful stage? Stephen Tanzers IWC.

One of the finest Champagnes I have ever brought to my lips, the 1999 Cristal bursts from the glass with fresh hazelnut and apple scents. Elegant, deep, and silky-textured, this medium to full-bodied beauty is immensely concentrated, pure, packed wit... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1999 Roederer, Louis Cristal 750ml

High-toned and floral with hints of coconut and spice. Firm and lively. Needs a little time to integrate and resolve the fine mousse with the tactile finish. More backward and powerful than most 1999s this has potential. Drink now through 2015. 29 000 cases made. Wine Spectator.

Wine News - December 2005Rating: 96 PointsBold, winey aromas of Sherried apple, beer, minerals and butter. Explosive flavors of stawberry, apple and pilsner beer are weighty, juicy and balanced. Sw

Die Cuvée Cristal, die fünf Jahre auf der Hefe reift, erfüllt allerstrengste Herstellungskriterien, die eine peinlich genaue Auswahl der Lagen, der Trauben und schließlich der Weine erfordern. Es werden nur Pinot Noir- und die Chardonnay-Trauben der zehn besten Lagen der Weinberge des Hauses Roederer verwendet.
