Louis Roederer inherited the family champagne business in 1833 and started buying the best vineyards he could acquire: unusual for the time, as most houses bought all their fruit from growers. In the late 19th century exports grew and a special cuvée - Cristal - was introduced for Tsar Alexander II of Russia. Another descendant created what became the non-vintage Brut Premier ion the 1920s with the aim of creating a consistent product that reflected the qualities of the house. On this wine the reputation of Roederer was further developed. To this day, Roederer remains an independent, family-owned business.
