Champagne Cristal - Maison Louis ROEDERER
An emblematic cuvee of the House of Louis Roederer, the Champagne Cristal was born from a Russian passion. It was in 1876 that the cuvée was born, thanks to Tsar Alexander II. At the time, Champagne was becoming increasingly famous in Russia. The emperor asked Louis Roederer to create an exclusive cuvee for him. But why Cristal? Tsar Alexander II was afraid of being the object of an attack or poisoning and made a request: the Champagne had to be presented in a transparent bottle and not in a green color like most of the bottles of the time. Moreover, the bottle must have a flat bottom. Because of its nobility, the crystal is imposed and gives its name to the cuvée. The first prestige cuvée in history and exclusively destined for the Russian market, it was not until 1924 that the Cristal cuvée was marketed throughout the world following the Russian revolution of 1917. Since then, only the crystal has been replaced. The shape of the bottle has remained unchanged and the imperial coat of arms still decorates it. Today, the sparkling cuvée is one of the world's greatest champagnes.
