Louis Roederer's Cristal champagne is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay. The vintage saw an excellent mixture of hot, cold and wet weather throughout the year, which helped to produce a distinctive, rich and complex champagne.
A huge methusaleh (6 litres) of Louis Roederer's top of the range Cristal champagne. 2002 was an excellent year for champagne, with Berry Brothers claiming it to be the greatest vintage since 1990, and this bottle is big enough for everyone to have a taste.
To celebrate the exceptional 2002 champagne vintage, Louis Roederer have commissioned Philippe Di Méo to dress 400 of their jeroboams in a protective 24 carat gold cover, named 'Flacon Médaillon'. Created by hand, each bottle took 14 people 4 days to produce, including 2 master goldsmiths, and uses 70 metres of brass ribbon dipped in gold. A stunning look for a sensational Champagne.
