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.
The color is pale golden. The inclusion of oak-aged reserve wines from four to 10 years is more apparent than in the “Brut” quality champagnes. The reserve wines give complexity and roundness characteristic of Louis Roederer champagnes. Carte Blanche is slightly sweet, smooth and creamy; an ideal dessert wine. A sugar dosage gives the wine a pleasant sweetness without masking its complexity and elegance.
