Louis Roederer's Marvelous Champagnes



Louis Roederer's Champagne Cristal may be the most famous sparkling wine in the world. And with good reason! It's been a favorite of those fortunate enough to get to taste it since the Russian Tzars -- for whom it was invented in 1876 -- fell in love with it. It remains one of the finest wines in the world. 

A run of great vintages, including the already legendary 2008 (released last year) and the truly stunning 2012 (currently available), has meant there's never been a better time for Cristal fanatics.

But it isn't just Cristal: Maison Louis Roederer has an outstanding range of wines, including the non-vintage Brut Premier, the Vintage Rosé and Vintage Brut and, of course, the Brut Nature Philippe Starck--which comes in the most beautifully-designed bottle we've seen in years.

What makes Roederer so special? Attention to detail, from their focus on the farming (they have been studying biodynamics for years and the 2012 Cristal is entirely from biodynamic vines) through to the slow and traditional winemaking. Nothing is rushed, nothing is pushed. Nothing is better.

    Why Shop at Flatiron Wines?

    Well, forgive us for saying so, but we're the best around! Maybe that sounds a bit cocky, so please refer to our FAQ's if you have any specific questions. 

    But, let us explain, in short, why we are the best option for you to buy these terrific Roederer wines! 

    Flatiron Wines is for the curious. For adventurers and explorers. For anyone who loves wine or small batch spirits, and wants to learn and taste more. We have the largest selection of artisanal wines anywhere, with thousands of every-day values, rare and hard-to-find gems, natural and organic wines, and small batch spirits. And we make it easy!

    Here's how:

    First, and perhaps most importantly, our shipping is fast, easy, efficient, and cheap! We'll make sure your wine gets to you as soon as we can do so safely. Sometimes (especially for our fellow New Yorkers) that means as early as same or next-day shipping with a variety of partners! Sometimes, ensuring the safety of your Cristal will mean a weather hold to avoid freezing temperatures. We understand that, so we provide temperature controlled storage at no cost, until we can make sure your wines arrive at your doorstep. Our full shipping terms covers this in more detail. 

    We also do our best to ensure a completely curated (it may be outdated, but I'd even say "bespoke") shopping experience. With storefronts in New York's Flatiron District and in the heart of San Francisco, we know wine so that you don't have to! We want wine shopping to be clear, easy, informative, but also FUN! We pride ourselves on having a staff that is knowledgeable and here to help you 24/7. If you have any questions, ring the store at (212)477-1315 or email us at info@flatiron-wines.com.
