“This year will be my 30th harvest at Roederer and the 2008 is my best Cristal ever on the market,” said Roederer cellar master Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon. The critics obviously agree with two major 100/100 scores for this tour de force Champagne. Stocks of this rare beauty are very limited and this 2008 vintage has become a beacon for collectors and Champagne enthusiasts worldwide. Indulge yourself.

Tasting Notes
James Suckling writes "100/100. Disgorged October 2016 and will be the first Cristal to be released ten years from harvest when it is offered in 2018. 35 parcels used from a possible 45 in this vintage. The assemblage is 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay. This is so fresh and tense and mineral with extremely exuberant chardonnay notes on the nose of white peach, lemon and yellow grapefruit, and hints of almost brambly sous bois aromas. The yeast characters are also super fresh, and there are subtle woody notes, with a hint of vanilla bean and light spices. The palate is super long, and very pure, powerful and focused. It drives deep and taut. Pinot noir is a strong core and the chardonnay sits at the edge offering lemon and white nectarine sorbet flavors. Staggeringly concentrated, yet the balance makes it seem airy and light. Acidity is perfectly positioned, and the power is intense and long. This is an ultra precise Cristal, finishing with a mere suggestion of savoriness and warmth to come. Impressive on release, this will be at its best drinking from 2025."
