Cristal Champagne

Louis Roederer's Cristal Champagne is regarded by many as the first prestige cuvee, created for Alexander II of Russia in the late 19th century. Because of the Tsar’s fear of assassination the glass bottle was made clear so that he could see the bubbles and be reassured that there wasn’t a bomb concealed within. The clear glass necessitates the anti-UV cellophane wrapper which prevents the deterioration of the wine in bottle.

Roederer’s Champagnes are largely sourced from their own vineyards, which ensure that they complete control over the quality of fruit that goes into every single Champagne bottle.
