Tasting Notes

Vinous – 99

Tasted from magnum, the 2013 Cristal Rose is ravishing. Dense, creamy and powerful, the 2013 captures all the qualities of the vintage, specifically the interplay of rich fruit from the warm summer and cooler inflections from a year that started late and ended late with a rare October harvest. Today, the 2013 is deep and beautifully seamless, but it is also young – far too young to be at its best. Dosage is 6.5 grams per liter, a bit less than for the standard bottlings, a decision taken to balance longer aging on the lees and a bit more residual sugar that is always left in the magnums after fermentation. Readers who can find the 2013 in magnum will experience one of the greatest thrills in wine. [Antonio Galloni, 26/03/2024]

Robert Parker – 99

A candidate for wine-of-the-vintage honors in Champagne, Roederer’s 2013 Cristal Rose is showing brilliantly, unfurling in the glass with notes of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers, red berries, stone fruit, freshly baked bread and tangerine oil. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, the vintage’s bright girdling acids are amply cloaked in exuberant, expressive and notably concentrated fruit; so while this Cristal is as tensile and age-worthy as one would expect, it’s also impressively fleshy and generous given the year. Concluding with an intensely sapid finish, the 2013 isn’t as overtly structured as the muscular, tightly wound 2012: rather, it’s the 2013’s alliance of cut and flesh, precision and charm that’s so compelling this year. This is another banner vintage for what I consider the reigning champion of the region’s tA te de cuvee bottlings, and it will be worth an effort to acquire. [William Kelley, 11/04/2021]

Current vintage. Cumieres Pinot and some north-facing Chouilly Chardonnay and 25% MLF. Very Chambolle, says Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon. Gorgeous. Lovely and fresh, salty and fine. A reflection of the Cristal rose. GV [17/06/2019]
