In 1974, 100 years after the creation of Cristal, Jean-Claude Rouzaud decided to create the Cristal Rosé cuvée.
To achieve this, he selected old-vine Pinot noir grapes from the finest Grand Cru vineyards at Aÿ, which are now Cultivated according to Biodynamic Principles.
The unique calcareous clay soil, which gives the grapes an exquisite minerality, enables the vines (in the best years) to attain exceptional fruit maturity, complemented by a crystalline acidity
A blend of around 55% Pinot noir and 45% Chardonnay, comprising 20% of wine matured in oak tuns.
Cristal Rosé is produced using the saignée (bleeding) process after cold maceration.
The Cristal Rosé cuvée is aged, on average, for 6 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars.
