A champion in its class and in the glass Established in 1776, Champagne Louis Roederer is one of the few remaining completely independent family-owned, great Champagne houses. In 1876 Tsar Alexander II, who was already a great fan of Louis Roederer’s Champagne, asked Louis Roederer to go one step further and produce, for his own personal consumption, a unique wine in quality and bottle. Louis Roederer offered to create an exceptional white crystal bottle to house the best selection from the 7 finest vineyards of his estate. This wine was only produced in the “great” years when the ripeness of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir enabled a subtle, precise balance. The wine is the region’s most prestigious. Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne, the first and ultimate Cuvée de Prestige, is only produced in the very finest vintages and with meticulous care.
