Cristal - incisive, seductive and delicious - has a “slender”, almost “living” freshness. Highly contemporary in its harmony and immediate seductiveness, it nevertheless remains first and foremost a great classic of northern Champagne, combining freshness, energy and an almost chalky mineral quality. The Cristal hallmarks are evident: purity, precision and the unique harmony of flavours associated with the subtle power of our historic vines, located on the finest Champagne Grand Cru terroirs.

Winery Tasting Notes


Brilliant straw with pale amber nuances and a lively and creamy mousse.


An intensely elegant, rich and open bouquet, with a succession of white fruits (apple), ripe and juicy yellow fruits (peaches) and slightly sour citrus fruits (mandarins and oranges). The quite typical Chardonnay notes then evolve, white flowers (acacia), dried fruit and buttery caramel hints suggestive of vanilla pastries.


The palate is full-bodied, supple and vinous and typically chardonnay, showing ripe white and yellow fruits,with almost buttery notes. The measured bubbles and fresh limestone extend in the mouth providing a pure and graceful line and length. The finish is slightly tighter yet with lingering, sensuous, sweet fruit.

Food Matching

Serve chilled (8-10 degrees Celsius). Cristal Brut 2005 is defined by its aromatic openness and intensely Chardonnay character: precise, seductive and delicious. Cristal Brut is an exquisite aperitif or celebratory Champagne. and the strength and finesse of Cristal makes it an excellent accompaniment to delicate dishes based on scallops, lobster and crayfish, John Dory fish and caviar.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Champagne Louis Roederer, founded in 1776, remains one of the very rare family Champagne businesses. For two centuries, six succeeding generations have been inspired by the same concern for quality. Frederic Rouzaud took up the reins in early 2006 from his father Jean-Claude Rouzaud who remains Chairman of the Board. Jean-Claude, grandson of Madame Camille Olry-Roederer and himself a trained Oenologist had led the company for 38 years, and is referred to as the 'Sage' of Champagne (the wise man of Champagne).

Frederic has spent the past 10 years working with his father in all areas of production and business and will bring his great business acumen and academic background to the company. Louis Roederer is unique in Champagne owning two-thirds of the vineyards for their total production covering the Pinot Noir sub regions of "Montagne de Reims" and "Vallee de la Marne" with Chardonnay from the "Cotes des Blanc". By 1995, recent acquisitions had increased Louis Roederer's holding from 180 hectares to almost 190 hectares, ranking 97.5% on the offi cial classifi cation scale.
