Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé Vinothéque 2000 12% 750ml

Louis Roederer remains one of the last 100% independent, family-owned Champagne Houses, presided over by seventh generation Frédéric Rouzaud. Under the stewardship of Chef du Cave, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon these past two decades, Louis Roederer has become the largest Biodynamic Domaine in Champagne with their 242 hectares located in the three most important sub-regions: Montagne de Reims (La Montagne); Vallée de la Marne (La Rivière) and Côtes des Blancs (La Côte). In March 2021, following 20 years of environmental transition, 115 hectares of the historic Louis Roederer family vineyard achieved organic certification.

Inherited by Louis Roederer in 1834, already in 1845, the House acquired Grand Cru vineyards in Verzy and Verzenay (Montagne de Reims), with the idea to become a wine grower in order to master the entire process of creating wines. The quest for a diversity of terroirs, crus, parcels, and grape varieties was gradually integrated by the House, unique in Champagne today, owning a minimum of 70% of their total needs. In mid-2021 Louis Roederer made the brave and audacious move to replace Brut Premier, created in 1986 by Frédéric’s father Jean-Claude, with a new multi-vintage cuvée, Collection. Largely in response to climate change and riper fruit, and matched by a desire to move towards the best possible blend in any given edition rather than retaining consistency of House style above all else, each Collection has its own identity.
