Galloni, the author of Vinous, a ‘modern day wine publication’, awarded Cristal 94 – 96 Points, and wrote the following tasting note:
The 2009 Cristal literally shimmers on the palate, showing great depth and purity in its sumptuous layers of fruit. It is a magnificent wine endowed with superb length and exceptional overall balance. The 2009 Cristal is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. The percentage of wine aged in oak is 15%, which is down slightly from previous vintages.
Cristal 2009 is extra special, having being released alongside Louis Roederer’s first ever marketing campaign, ‘La Différence Cristal’, as well as having a new, modernised label.
