Our New Hunt: A Sublime Condition 1961 Louis Roederer Cristal Magnum, and Other Availabilities

Posted by Veronica Cheung on

Louis Roederer is one of the very top Champagne houses in the world, and their Cristal is one of the most highly sought prestige cuvees. The cuvee and the distinctive flat, clear lead crystal glass bottle design was first made in 1876 to satisfy the demanding tastes and safety needs of Tsar Alexander II. Produced only during the best years, when the Chardonnay (around 40%) and Pinot noir (around 60%) grapes have attained perfect maturity, it is aged for 6 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for a further 8 months after dégorgement, but the recipe is slightly changed based on the growing conditions of each year. Every release offers a powerful and multi-dimensional Champagne that amazes every drinker's senses.
Due to its popularity around the globe, the demand for their Cristal champagne is always immense and prices keep rising year after year especially for their large format bottles and mature vintages which come even rarer. Today we are excited to offer their Cristal 1961 in the magnum format 1.5L. This is sourced directly from Europe and it has been stored under ideal conditions to gain maturity, most exceptional given the bottling in 1.5L which allows for more gradual ageing. Aged cristal is difficult to source, let alone large format bottles which are only bottled in limited quantities, so this is truly a rare gem that is highly worthy of collection.
