Champagne LOUIS ROEDERER
The house belongs to the same family since its foundation in Reims in 1776, and to date, it remains one of the great Champagne houses still independent. In 1876, Louis Roederer’s son, who succeeded his father, created the Cristal Cuvée for the Tsar Alexander II.
It uses a Flemish glass master that designs an exceptional crystal bottle, so strong that it allows the bottom’s bottle to be flat. Thus was born the cuvée Cristal, the first cuvée de prestige of champagne. In 1909, the champagne house became the Official Supplier to the Imperial Court of Russia by Nicolas II.
From its size, its diversity and quality, the vineyards of Louis Roederer is certainly the main asset that founds house’s policy, ensuring its independence and the control of its champagne’s style. Its 240 acres are exclusively located in the Grands Crus and Premiers Crus of the three Champagne region. Reflecting the house’s spirit of perfection, the Louis Roederer’s style is based on precision, patience and attention to details. Louis Roederer has its own policy regarding the aging length of its champagne, well above the rules and requirements of the Champagne region habits: 3 ½ years for Brut Premier, 5 years for the vintages, and 6 years for Cristal.
This spirit of perfection is common to the different cuvées (Brut champagne, Brut Vintage, Blanc de Blancs vintage champagne, vintage rosé champagne and of course the Cristal and Cristal Rosé). Various shades characterizing its champagnes confer them a true tasting pleasure: very fine bubbles, the taste of the wine that combines the fruitiness and freshness, their flexible structure, highlighted by a delicate vinosity flavor to end up with a feeling of fullness.
