Louis Roederer Cristal Rose' 2005

Louis Roederer uses the méthode champenoise for their Cristal champagne production. Rose' 2005 is composed of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from Grand Cru vineyards. 20% of the wines are aged in oak casks with weekly batonnage. No malolactic fermentation occurs. The 2005 Cristal Rose' is created using the saignée method following cold skin-contact maceration which typically lasts from 5 to 8 days.

Cristal Rose' 2005 ages an average of 6 years in the cellars before disgorgement. The dosagé of between 8 and 10 grams/liter is determined for each vintage. It rests an additional 8 months after disgorgement.
