Champagne Louis Roederer
Louis Roederer - the tsar's first choice
The renowned champagne house Louis Roederer was founded in Reims in 1776 and has been family-owned ever since. In 1833 Louis Roederer took over the family business from his uncle Nicolas Schreider and gave it his name. Since then, thanks to the involvement of the family and good connections to commercial travellers, sales of Roederer champagnes grew to a tenth of the total production of the Champagne region by 1872. The main customer at this time, besides the United States of America, was the Russian Tsarist Empire. Tsar Nicolaus II, himself a great lover of Roederer champagnes, ordered a special vintage in Reims and sent his court cellar man to support the producers of the sparkling wine. The product of this collaboration was the world-famous and still highly popular Cristal Champagne.
Success is the sum of the right decisions
While other champagne producers have their grapes delivered by contract winemakers, Louis Roederer decided to adopt a different strategy by buying more vineyards around Reims. Frédéric Rouzaud, the current director of the Roederer company, continued this tradition and brought 214 hectares of vineyards into the family estate. In spite of the high production figures of the Champagne House Louis Roederer, due to the high production standards, they will never meet the enormous demand for their noble products.
