Discover More About Our Products

The Louis Roederer Cristal exclusively originates from great vintages when the Pinot Noir, as well as the Chardonnay, reach their perfect state of ripeness. After the vinification, this French sparkling ages for six years in the wine cellar and further eight months after the Dégorgement. Louis Roederer produced his first Louis Roederer Cristal in the year of 1876 following the request of the Russian czar. Alexander II was a huge admirer of Roederer champagnes and each year, reserved the best cuvées for himself. However, the Louis Roederer Cristal comes in bottles with a flat bottom in order to emphasize its singularity. Cellarman Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon says about his gorgeous champagne: "A wine of pure pleasure and a sophisticated gastronomic wine, Cristal is both powerful and delicate, combining subtlety and precision."

The Winery

Louis Roederer

Louis Roederer

A passion for great wines and a desire to compensate for the limits that the "château policy" naturally imposes on the development of Louis Roederer Champagne have, over the years, driven Jean Claude and then Frédéric Rouzaud to acquire an exclusive group of properties around the Champagne House in Reims which, although managed truly independently, share the same philosophy of excellence, and today make up the "Louis Roederer Group".

Wijn en vrienden altijd gaan goed samen.
Deze Pinot Noir is aangenaam op het oog. Bakkerij aroma's. Men merkte erg goed de zuurgraad van Louis Roederer op, zeer goed.
Goede mousserende wijn Louis Roederer op namiddag te gebruiken.

Comprei aqui há já algum tempo.
Atraiu-me a sua cor intensa. Pelos aromas de levedura, recorda outros espumantes. Gostei porque me deixou a boca um bocadinho áspera.
