Today, the house Louis Roederer still is in the private property. Compared to the further well-known champagne producers such as Krug, Moet Chandon or Taittinger et is this a rare decline. Roederer champagne is today genuine luxury property and with many wine connoisseurs likes. The Roederer Cristal champagne provides just in Miami Beach a great sensation and becomes there every occasion tasted almost or drunk. Louis Roederer has vineyard situation of first class and the Roederer estate contains about 180 hectares of acreage. Roederer produces almost 2 million bottles of high-quality champagne per annum and provides almost 80 per cent of the wine from situations of its own. The acquisition of wine is therefore very low at Roederer and the vintners can rely on a constant quality.

The champagne house Louis Roederer in 1776 was mentioned documentarily for the first time, however, historians assume that there was already the house before. The year 1876 represents a milestone in the history of the Roederer champagnes. This year Louis Roederer delivered the champagne to the Russian Tsar first in a crystal-clear bottle. The Tsar family was already one very good customer for Roederer. This culture cares for Luois Roederer pinkly with his luxus cuvée Roederer Cristal and Roederer Cristal certainly today.

It then came to first actual crisis in the House of Roederer in 1917. Causally released by the Russian revolution Louis Roederer lost nearly 80 per cent of its paragraph the Russian market a substantial value took there. One saved himself about the crisis by selling the large inventory to South America and obtaining partial proceeds so at least. The destiny of the house Roederer became as of the 1930s years of a certain of Camille Orly Roederer led over 40 years for a long time. She is mentioned in the same breath with the well-known champagne personalities as widows Clicquot and Bollinger today.

Roederer champagnes have easily to open a reputation to be storable very long and themselves only after 15 years.

The bottle become openly far too early without being able to develop the terrific and unique bouquet. Even the family Roederer considers proceeding against this "waste {wastefulness}".
