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.

Fabulous example of one of (if not the) Reims' finest houses. A sophisticated balance of toasty & citrus flavours with good body and long finish. Liquid gold - second only to 1996 it will only improve over the next few years...

You won t soon forget this vivid and expressive Champagne. It packs in compound layers of citrus vanilla pear and nutmeg that harmonize and linger on the finish. Bright acidity makes it extra refreshing and layered. It has really opened up since last year... Wine Spectator.

The 1990 Cristal is a dramatic sweeping wine endowed with masses of apricots peaches flowers and minerals. A large-scaled Cristal the 1990 combines size with clarity and focus in a remarkably complete style that recalls the 1982. The wine remains generous on the palate with stunning length and a finish that lasts forever. The 1990 Cristal is 62% Pinot Noir 38% Chardonnay. Just a small portion of the wine (7-10%) underwent malolactic fermentation. This bottle was disgorged in late 2007 with
