Louis Roederer’s most famous wine was created in 1876 to satisfy the demanding tastes of Tsar Alexander II. The emperor asked Louis Roederer to reserve the House’s best cuvée for him every year.
The Cristal identity is unique, original and truly unlike any other in the history of the fine wines from the Champagne region. It is a wine of the soil, a wine of depth, a wine of the land yet turned to the light, reaching for the sky that il almost seems to touch.
Perfectly in keeping with the continental trend of the decade, the 2015 vintage created wines that were ripe, well-structured and crowned by a bold freshness guided by its white soils. Brought by Roederer’s gentle and virtuous winegrowing practices, the purity of the chalk shines through and offers a perfect symbiosis of maturity and freshness.
