About Louis Roederer
The house of Louis Roederer is responsible for producing several prestige Champagnes, including Blanc de Blanc and Brut Rose. However, their crown jewel is Cristal, crafted using 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from their premier vineyards in Reims. The history of Louis Roederer dates back to 1776, and Cristal was originally created for Russian Emperor Tsar Alexander II in 1876. To this day, Louis Roederer remains a family-run business, now in its 7th generation as the largest independent Champagne house.
Cristal is only produced in the finest vintages and has the potential to age for several decades. When you come across its signature gold cellophane wrapping, take a moment to appreciate it. Not only is it a nod to its historical prestige, but it also protects the bottle from damaging UV rays.
