Created in 1876 for Czar Alexander II, this is a Champagne at it's finest, as inspired today as it has always been, the embodiment of elegance and purity.
Cristal is made according to the strictest criteria based on a drastic process of selection applying to the vintage, the cru, the village, the grapes and finally the wines.
Only Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from the House's 10 most celebrated crus are used in the production of this legendary cuvee.
Did you know that Loius Roederer Cristal is the only Champagne to have a flat bottom? It's because the Czar was paranoid that somebody was going to assasinate him, by putting a bomb into the punt (recess) of a bottle of Champagne. The design was therefore changed to a flat bottomed bottle.
