The Roederer style is built on precision, patience and attention to detail, reflecting the spirit of perfectionism that is the mark of the House. That pefectionism is apparent in every cuvee, every nuance and subtle variation that conspires to give each champagne its pleasurable taste; the outstanding smoothness of the bubbles; a taste that balances fruitiness and freshness; a smooth a subtle structure, marked by a delicate vinosity that finishes on a sensation of fulness. The jewel of the House is Cristal, created in 1876 for Tsar Alexander II. This is champagne at its finest, as inspired today as it has always been, the embodiment of elegance and purity.
Golden yellow colour with green highlights. Hints of fruit (crystallised citrus, orange and melon too) and flowers (honeysuckle) on a delicate background of warm Viennese pastry and toast. Flavours of citrus and fresh fruit (grapes, lemon) mingled with warmer aromas of honey, woodiness and toastiness.
