[ Home > Roederer Cristal Rose Champagne 1996 1.5L ]|
Ever since Champagne Louis Roederer was founded in 1776, the house has been synonymous with the world's great Champagnes.
Roederer's philosophy of unyielding quality is based on two factors: 1) Vineyard ownership: 75% of Roederer's grape needs are supplied by it's own estate vineyards, highly unusual in the Champagne region. 2) Extensive reserve cellars, which ensure consistency and full, complex flavors year after year.
Cristal, the champagne created by special request of Tsar Alexander II, is one of the world's most famous and highly respected wines. Brut Premier, the company's flagship multi-vintage Champagne, is a distinctive, elegant wine that epitomizes the House style of complexity, depth of flavor and long finish. Roederer is also esteemed for its Brut Vintage, Blanc de Blancs, and Brut Rosť Champagnes.
Distinctive for its ginger and nut elements, this rosť offers complex citrus and biscuit tones on a solid yet very accessible structure. Vinous in character, it has a lovely, lingering finish.
