Roederer, Rolls Royce & Cristal – Day 4

Day 4 – Tuesday, 31st of May

The day started with a visit to Louis Roederer.  To my surprise, I had the pleasure of touring the property and parts of Reims in the family’s Rolls Royce.  The personal tour under the guidance of Ms. Martine Lorson allowed for an understanding and appreciation for Cristal and the house of Louis Roederer unlike any other experience.  I found myself totally absorbed in the mystery and elusive elegance this wonderful house harness and embodies in its Champagne during the tour and lunch with Monsieur Charles Fournier, Export Manager for Louis Roederer.
