More about this Champagne
In 1876, Russia's Tsar Alexander II, a long-time lover of Louis Roederer wines, asked the producer to create a special cuvée for his personal use which was unique in both its style and bottle design. Dissatisfied with standard champagne bottles that concealed the beautiful colour and effervescence from the eye, he requested that his personal cuvée be served in transparent crystal glass bottles with a flat bottom to foil the insertion of explosives by would-be assassins. Thus, Louis Roederer selected the best vines from seven Grand Crus on his estate and Cristal, the first prestige cuvée, was born.
Aged for 6 years on yeast and a further 8 months in bottle.
Critics have scored this as one of the top 5 Brut wines, scoring 19/20 & 95/100.
Food suggestions: Shellfish, crab and lobster.
Grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir.
