Located in Reims with 240 hectares of vineyards strategically spread across 16 villages including key sites in Montagne De Reims, Vallee De La Marne and Cotes Des Blancs, Louis Roederer has grown to be the largest independent and family owned Houses in Champagne.

When Chef De Cave Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon was asked regarding the “Blend” he simply replied “We do not blend, we combine” which is true to his base principles across the Roederer portfolio. In Combination with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir is the selected choice varietal and is expertly balanced to achieve desired depth and character in all his Champagne ranges.

Tasting Notes

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
From a difficult vintage with destructive hailstorms and botrytis, the 2000 Cristal opens with an elegant and delicate bouquet with brioche, ripe apple, green olive and iodine aromas. Complex and very salty, with oyster and umami flavors, this is a generous and very long Cristal that is excellent with Japanese food, such as sashimi for example, as chef de cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon said during the tasting in New York in November 2018.
