Beautifully presented in a Luxury wooden gift box, one bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal 75cl. A sophisticated and stylish luxury champagne gift set that would make the perfect gift for any occasion and something really special for a collector to cellar and hold onto.

A favourite of the rich and famous. A wine of pure pleasure and a sophisticated gastronomic wine, Cristal is both powerful and delicate, combining subtlety and precision.

Its classic bouquet is both elegant and discreet. The attack in the mouth is concentrated and continues with mature fruits. The wine is prolonged by smoky flavours, once again creating the impression of natural depth. The textures are silky, velvety, and almost luscious; they provide perfect overtones to the wine’s freshness in a luscious and sensual ensemble. Powdery and salty nuances stimulate the edges of the tongue, adding a precise and energetic quality. And the final phase of the tasting is predominantly an impression of refinement and lightness.

Please note, we cannot guarantee specific vintages in these gift sets. The vintage will be the current available one.

Cristal, a blend of around 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot noir is the prestige cuvée of Champagne Louis Roederer - one of the largest remaining independent Champagne Houses, owned by the same family since it was founded in 1776.  

Initially founded as Dubois Père & Fils in 1776, Louis Roederer inherited the company from his uncle in 1833, renamed it and set out to target markets abroad.  With concentrated efforts in several countries, including Russia, In 1909, Tsar Nicholas II nominated Louis Roederer as the official wine supplier to the Imperial Court of Russia.

Though the Russian Revolution and the U.S. Prohibition caused financial difficulties during the early 20th century, Roederer was re-established as a leading Grandes Marques producer and remains in the ownership of descendants Rouzaud - a family of leading Wine Specialists.  

From a vineyard area of 240 hectares (590 acres), Louis Roederer produces two thirds of the grapes needed for its production, sourcing the remaining required fruit from established farming contacts.


Cristal was first created in 1876 for Alexander II of Russia, and is viewed by many as the first prestige cuvée. As the political situation in Russia at the time of his rule was unstable, the Tsar feared assassination. He ordered that champagne bottles for his Three Emperors Dinner be made clear, so that he could see the bubbles and also to prevent hiding a bomb within them, as could happen with a typical dark green bottle. Louis Roederer commissioned a Flemish glassmaker to create a clear lead glass Champagne bottle with a flat bottom. The Champagne has since become known as "Cristal" and is still presented in a flat-bottomed clear, "crystal" bottle, with it's characteristc anti-UV cellophane wrapper, and gold label.

Produced uniquely during the best years, when the Chardonnay (40%) and Pinot Noir (60%) grapes have attained perfect maturity, Cristal is aged for six years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for a further eight months after dégorgement.

Widespread awareness of its high price has given the wine an image of exclusivity that, in turn, has elevated demand.
