Named for the lead-crystal bottles which harnessed the original Champagne vintages reserved for Russian Tsar Alexander II. Cristal is only produced when the grape quality is highest to ensure that every bottle is a glorious demonstration of the skill of the winemakers and the excellence of the terrior.

The vintage of Cristal from the turn of the millennium is a highly elegant wine which really needs a few more years before it should be drinking well! Exciting stuff! 

Information About Louis Roederer

Louis Roederer was born in 1809 and would later establish himself as a successful entrepreneur and patron of the arts. His relationship with the eponymous Champagne house began in 1833, after he was chosen to inherit the business, formerly known as Maison Dubois, by his uncle. 

Roederer made it his goal to have every aspect of Champagne production under expert supervision, even deviating from the normal practice of buying grapes from growers to buy land in the region's best areas. The Roederer style and high quality saw business flourish worldwide; Louis Roederer's son, Louis Roederer II, matched his father in both passion and talent, and upon assuming management of the house, success continued. 

In 1870, their most famous customer, Tsar Alexander II of Russia asked Louis Roederer II to reserve for him the best wines, exclusively for his personal consumption. This exquisite Champagne was held in flat-bottomed, lead-crystal bottles, crafted from specifications set by the Tsar himself in order to better view the colour, effervescence and any hazards which concern a non-democratic ruler of a nation. The wine, known as Cristal, lost its royal commission in 1917, but would not be available for public consumption until 1945.
