Overview

The palate is characteristically Roederer vintage: deep and full at first, showing rich, rounded vinosity but with all the refined sweetness, acidity and tight-knit texture of Pinot Noir from Verzenay. Perfectly integrated overall, with an elegant feel andflavours which evolve towards the sweet, palate-caressing texture of candied fruit, marzipan, toast, white chocolate and caramel.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Champagne Louis Roederer, founded in 1776, remains one of the very rare family Champagne businesses. For two centuries, six succeeding generations have been inspired by the same concern for quality. Frederic Rouzaud took up the reins in early 2006 from his father Jean-Claude Rouzaud who remains Chairman of the Board. Jean-Claude, grandson of Madame Camille Olry-Roederer and himself a trained Oenologist had led the company for 38 years, and is referred to as the 'Sage' of Champagne (the wise man of Champagne).

Frederic has spent the past 10 years working with his father in all areas of production and business and will bring his great business acumen and academic background to the company. Louis Roederer is unique in Champagne owning two-thirds of the vineyards for their total production covering the Pinot Noir sub regions of "Montagne de Reims" and "Vallee de la Marne" with Chardonnay from the "Cotes des Blanc". By 1995, recent acquisitions had increased Louis Roederer's holding from 180 hectares to almost 190 hectares, ranking 97.5% on the offi cial classifi cation scale.
