Champagne Louis Roederer
Louis Roederer is a Champagne house based in Reims, France. It was founded in 1776, and has been owned by the property of the Rouzaud family since 1819, which makes it one of the few major Champagne houses to be family owned. It is most famous for producing the premium champagne Cristal. Tsar Nicholas II nominated Louis Roederer as the official wine supplier to the Imperial Court of Russia, and it thus became known as the 'Champagne of the Tsars'. The annual production of its wines (Brut Premier, Brut vintage, Brut Rosé, Blanc de Blancs, Cristal) represents almost 3 million bottles, distributed to 80 countries worldwide. The 214 hectares (529 acres) of Louis Roederer's vineyards are quite evenly distributed across the three main growing zones in Champagne: the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne, and the Côte des Blancs. Louis Roederer's vineyards cover 2/3 of the company's needs, leading some people to suggest that Louis Roederer could be called an "estate" champagne. This situation gives Louis Roederer a greater control over its production.
