2002 Louis Roederer Cristal 'Gold Medalion' Orfevres Limited Edition Brut Jeroboam
Cristal is a remarkably balanced and refined champagne whose length is inimitable. It has a silky texture and fruity aromas, complemented by a powerful mineral quality with white fruit and citrus notes. Cristal is a wine that keeps well: it can be conserved for over twenty years without losing its freshness and character.

Produced uniquely during the best years, when the Chardonnay (around 40%) and Pinot noir (around 60%) grapes have attained perfect maturity, Cristal is aged for 6 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for a further 8 months after dégorgement.

Our House’s most famous wine was created in 1876 to satisfy the demanding tastes of Tsar Alexander II. The emperor asked Louis Roederer to reserve the House’s best cuvée for him every year. He was particularly fond of the House’s wine. To distinguish this cuvée, this exceptional champagne came in a flat-bottomed, transparent lead-crystal bottle. The new brand was named after this precious material, which is particularly transparent and luminous.

Rating 96+ RP - 2002 2002 Louis Roederer Cristal 'Gold Medalion' Orfevres Limited Edition Brut Jeroboam - 96+ pts! - 3000ML Luxury has always been a necessity for most of us but for those with a flair for the extraordinary, the cuvee Cristal 2002 should satiate. Luxury designer extraordinaire Philippe di Meo has teamed up with Champagne Louis Roederer to produce a limited edition Jeroboam design for the cuvee Cristal 2002. The appearance of the bottle itself screams luxury and one might as well imagine how luscious the inner content is going to be. In this day and age where appearance is everything, Cristal's distinctive clear glass bottle encased in a lattice of 24-carat gold provides the ultimate in luxury wine tasting. Each bottle takes four days to create by two master goldsmiths and the result is described as being "inspired by the greatest traditions of jewelery." The limited edition Jeroboam design for the cuvee Cristal 2002 is indeed a jewel in the real sense. A precious jewel to gift to someone special or even better, a gift of luxury to your own taste buds. Roederer's 2002 Cristal is still in its infant, fresh stage. Subtle notes of pears, flowers, spices, mint, minerals and oak are woven into a cashmere-like frame of extraordinary grace and elegance. This beautifully-sculpted Champagne possesses notable clarity but with the additional depth of fruit that is characteristic of this vintage. It is a gorgeous, seductive Cristal of the highest level. In 2002, Cristal is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay with 10 grams of dosage. 20% of the wine was fermented in oak. RP
