Description

Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne Rosé 2013 Vintage has an intense, generous bouquet with predominant aromas of figs, raspberries and wild strawberries. An immense wine with great finesse with dried fruits, fresh almonds and frangipane, to notes of Tarte Tatin, oven-baked apples and caramel. In tastings, the wine is soft and silky on the palate with a marvellous harmony of flavour and concentration of fruit. A succession of the Cristal Rosé red fruit flavours lead to a lingering finish. It is soft and fresh, and distinguished by its silky elegance.

ABV 12%

2013 was a turbulent year in Champagne, but once again Louis Roederer’s Cristal proves that great winemakers can create masterpieces even in challenging vintages…

  • 99 points, “A candidate for wine-of-the-vintage honours in Champagne… This is another banner vintage for what I consider the reigning champion of the region’s tête de cuvée bottlings, and it will be worth an effort to acquire.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
  • 98 points, “The 2013 Cristal Rosé is searingly intense right out of the glass… Cristal Rosé has one of the best track records for aging in Champagne. I suspect the 2013 will join the ranks of the epic vintages.” – Antonio Galloni, Vinous
  • 98 points, “Aromas of strawberry, iron, orange peel and brioche follow through to a full body with gorgeous fruit and sweet tannins that layer the wine. Strawberry-patisserie undertones. Rather juicy and chewy with very round, fine tannins. Savoury, flavourful and lightly spicy.” – James Suckling
