Generations at the helm maintain and enrich the Roederer tradition, holding its wine amongst the most prestigious in the world.

Champagne for the Tsar

Conquering big markets Louis Roederer senior brought to the house the principalities of Germany, Hungary, Sweden and the vast market of Russia including catching the attention of Tsar alexander II, a great lover of Roederer wines. To satisfy the taste of the Tsar to have his bottles of Champagne appear with greater distinction, a special bottle was designed – untinted crystal bottle with a flat bottom – Cristal, and emblazoned with the imperial coat of arms. Later becoming the ‘Official Supplier to the Imperial Court of Russia’ sadly put to an end by the October Revolution, terminating a half-century of aristocratic accord.

And Onto the World

Turning their heads to great European tables, then visions of the future filled with a view of the globe. A strategic approach to their grapes and land for independence with grapes and immense cellars on Boulevard Lundy in Reims made achieving high production while maintaining quality, possible, something thought not possible at the time.
