In 1876, Louis Roederer II who had succeeded his father created the Cristal cuvee for Tsar Alexander II. Over 134 years later, it remains faithful to its origin, inspired by elegance, purity, and precision.
"Exceptionally rich and dense, an exceptional wine that reveals itself in layers, from the first fruit attack to the mineral texture and the way it gradually fills the mouth. Selected from old vines, there is a great flavor in this wine, with the promise of many years' aging.
