CUVEE CRISTAL LOUIS ROEDERER, CHAMPAGNE ~ FRANCE
In 1876 Tsar Alexander II of Russia, fearing that a bomb hidden behind the conventional green glass of a Champagne bottle might be used to assassinate him, ordered Champagne to be produced in a clear glass bottle and without the traditional bell-shaped base. In order to ensure that this bottle shape was able to cope with the pressure, it had to be manufactured from lead crystal, and hence became known as Cristal. The wine itself is full-bodied and powerful but balanced, fully deserving of its stellar reputation.
